My ears are red and swollen from piercing?

I got 2 new piercings on each ear about 2 or 3 weeks ago. I've been cleaning them regularly but recently they started to hurt a lot. It's red and swollen and hurts even when I'm not touching them. It's pulsing and it's just really painful. What should I do?

  • Yes, I guess that's natural and it can happen because of piercing.

  • That sounds like an infection. Go see a doctor and they'll probably prescribe some kind of topical medicated cream.

  • Disinfect it, and then moisturize it.
    Ideally coconut oil since it's antibacterial/anti-fungal.
