Stretched ear lobe bleeding, what to do?

My ear lobe gauges were at a size 8 and I went to stretch them to a 6. I think I must have mistaken the size 4 taper with the 6 one. All I know is that it was difficult to remove the taper once it was in, so I waited a few days. When I was finally able to take the taper out, my ear started bleeding. It does not look like a blowout. There is no skin coming out, it's just bleeding. It doesn't hurt, but it did sting when I went to clean the blood with a q-tip. I downsized immediately. Is there anything I should do to help it heal other than sea salt soaks?

    You did exactly what you needed to do!! That's happened to me, just leave the downsized In and make sure that you keep them clean!
