Stretched ears


I’m at 16mm and I caught one of my ears in the back of the screw of a tunnel when I was tightening it up 😭😭 I’ve warm salty watered it and put on Vaseline for protection ... I know it’s better to let it heal with no plug or tunnel in but is there any material plug or tunnel that is better for my ear at the minute so when it is mostly healed I know what type of plug to put in so it doesn’t get sore again ?
