What do you suggest if my piercing is red, is it normal?

New or old piercing?: Light pinkness in a new piercing may be ok- hopefully it is being cleansed twice a day at minimum. However, if you have swelling, warmth, pus, tenderness, pain, streaking - then you may need to have it looked at for infection.
