Anyone ever do it?  What gauge needle do you use?  I have some fairly nasty cauliflower forming on my ears, one of which is very new and fluid filled.  I want to drain it but don't want to run to a clinic each time.  Wondering if anyone has done it before and what the outcome was.

Thanks.

slin needles or 22-24 gauge... it's painless...


biggest risk is infection...due to low circulation in your ears keep the site clean and you should be fine!  Cheesy

If it's really fresh a slin needle will work great.  I would buy a pack of 10 and use a new one about every 2-3 draws just to eliminate any bacteria caused by air hitting the needle, but that's just me.  I know of guys who waited and then resorted to a 22g after some brutal massaging to break stuff up.

things you guys need to realize when using alcohol...it doens't disinfect...it just moves shit around on your skin...so when you clean the site make one swiping pass...dont rub it around.


the only readily available disinfectant that most people have at home is betadine...betadine=good shit! significantly reduces infectious material AND will allow you to stick the site multiple times without having to rewipe like you would with alcohol  Cheesy

*EDIT* and in regaurds go bbd's comment he's right..NEVER reuse a needle...look at the shit you just took out of yourself...and then it came in contact WITH the air and you're gonna wanna reintroduce it to your body? yeah...if you're careless you deserve a rip roaring infection or even worse... i'm giving you guys this knowledge from what i've learned and am still learning in the paramedicine field...i want ya'll to be safe about doing this so i feel the need to share! hell i even do it..but the risks of doing this are pretty invasive when i'ts on your ear...so follow the simple guidelines i've presented and you should have no problems treating that shit.  but just like greg valentino's dumb ass...if you just do whatever the hell..you will pay for it.

I did it last night, was pretty easy and got 1cc of blood out of my ear.  I used rubbing alcohol then put a bit of neosporin on the puncture site.  I think i'll pick up a headgear tonight... I don't want to make a habit of jabbing my ear with a needle.

Yeah, it was really fresh and I didn't get it completely drained.  But it no longer is painful at least.

I'm glad to hear it worked out good!  If you have a little residual that has obvious puffiness to it, just pick up a slin needle so you can access the small pocket easier.  The headgear thing is the way to go.  I'm not one those guys that think they look tough with the califlower thing going on.  I'd rather be steal and looking healthy!

Yeah, the whole "battlescars" bullshit doesn't fly with me either... Plus as you said, that shit just hurts!  Makes me not want to go in for the double leg since I have to push in with the ear that is killing Smiley.
