Daith Piercing for Migraines

Anecdotally, daith piercings have been beneficial for migraine sufferers. The fact that the daith piercing is located on an acupressure point in the innermost cartilage fold of the ear may play a role in this. Many people think putting an earring in your daith helps reduce discomfort since it continuously compresses that pressure point.

Daith Piercing Healing Time

The healing time for a Daith piercing can range from 4 to 12 months, thus it truly depends on the individual. A six-month healing time is more attainable with the right aftercare and if you don’t fiddle with your piercing.

Daith Piercing Procedure

The daith must be pierced extremely softly and slowly in order to avoid making any mistakes because of its position on the ear. It will take a few more seconds to finish the Daith Piercing.

The daith will remain dull and uncomfortable for a few weeks following the treatment, but careful management will alleviate a lot of this pain.

How to Care for your Daith Piercing

  1. Whenever you clean your piercing, ensure sure your hands have been well cleansed with soap.
  2. Salt and water solutions are the ideal cleaning product; for the best results, choose one of our salt spray solutions.
  3. Avoid using cotton wool to wipe your ears; instead, use thicker kitchen paper or a non-alcoholic swabstick.
  4. Carefully adjust your piercing a little to let the solution to penetrate completely.
  5. Two cleanings per day are plenty; any more would irritate the pierced region.
  6. Steer clear of chemical-based remedies like alcohol or hydrogen peroxide because they just make the problem worse.
  7. Avoid applying thick oils and creams to the area for the first couple of weeks.
