NeedMoreInformation: We need more information to advice you. We need to know when was the piercing done. By Whom, was it done by a doctor with aseptic technique or by some one else and what procedure was ued. And if there is any redness or swelling at the piercing sites. Are both ears sore. The pierced ears can be a little sore on the day of piercing. But if it is after a day or two or three it may be due to infection
5to7 days: It takes 5to 7 days to heal if there is no infection.
Can nose picking make nose go bigger just as a stretched ear lobe (Piercing)? If not, how could the ear lobe be stretched?
Of course. Like all: Tissues, as they are torn down & rebuilt, life long, new structure is based on previous structure combined with both internal controls (still poorly understood) and external forces. Rebuilding, restructuring of nose tissues follow same principles, structure over time powerfully influenced by both degree and persistence of external inputs altering physical structure, as in plastic surgery, etc.
New ear lobe: Piercing care. Saturate gauze w saline solution (pinch of sea salt in warm water, place on piercing ; allow it to gently drip into the piercing. Or you can buy pressurized saline solution at a drug store. Do not twist the posts. Clean twice a day.
It has been three weeks since my two ear lobe piercings. Both of them are red and swollen and are a bit dry around the piercing. What should I do?
Hw lng shld v wait for piercing the ears aftr stitching the ear lobes. Can we wear clutch earings before piercing the ears n after 20 days of stitching?
Why stitching?: If your earrings caused a slit, be sure that next time they are not too close to the edge. Avoid rings that are large or heavy. You can pierce again after 3 weeks. Avoid antibiotic creams or ointments. Avoid bacitracin, neosporin triple antibiotic, etc., as these may weaken the new healing & cause allergic reactions.
I have a bump in my left ear lobe that's not from a piercing, doesn't hurt & I've had it once b4 but pretty sure it went away. What is it?
Hi, my ear lobe is inflamed and swollen to around double the size of it's counterpart. I've no piercings but think it's a result football on Saturday?
Get seen now: A swollen painful earlobe, especially if tight, firm swelling, from injury needs to be seen right away so you do not develop a permanent deformity (cauliflower ear). See http://www. Webmd. Com/skin-problems-and-treatments/cauliflower-ear-symptoms-causes-treatments Protective headgear prevents this from happening more often now.
My 6 yrs daughter has swallowed ear lobe after 1 week of ear piercing which is tender to touch. What to do. Please help?
Worrisome: Sometimes frequent cleaning of the site with peroxide followed by effective drying can reduce the localized infection. You may need to remove the post for this to settle down, but the healing process will seal the hole and you start over later. It's important to keep on top of this since the germs can actually get into ear cartilage and deform the ear. If it doesn't improve quickly, have her seen.
Ear lobe piercing 49 days old has white stuff coming out of it. Piercing hole & ear isn't red swolen, & has no pain. Is my ear piercing infected?
I have got this bump thing on the bottom of my ear lobe I can feel it nesr the piercing spot seems like a pimple but won't pop if I try to pop it?
Scar tissue: Most likely if not red or tender (try not to squeeze!) If it gets larger or red it may need to be seen by a doctor, meanwhile wash gently, pat dry and keep hair clean. A pimple will clear in a few days.
It has been a week since I got my second ear lobe piercing. My left ear is somewhat swollen and my right is red and swollen and hurts to touch. Help.
My daughter got ear piercing 3 month ago And it was not healing and One ear got closed up and ear lobe scar tissue will go away?
Not completely: Scar tissue by its very nature is permanent but its appearance and extent can be minimized during the 1st year by keeping the wound site soft using antibiotic ointments and minimizing sun exposure. The ointments (Neosporin, bacitracin) help not because of the antibiotic but because of the vehicle which usually contains vitamin E. After a year if cosmetically problematic see a plastic surgeon.See 1 more doctor answer
My daughter got ear piercing 3 month ago And it was not healing properly and One ear got closed up without healing and she has ear lobe scar tissue, ?
A question here??
Possible infected ear lobe from ear piercing? I got my ears pierced on christmas eve for a christmas present. I am very religious about cleaning the piercing. My right ear lobe now has a ball inside the the lobe and has drainage on the backing to the earr
Ear infection: Your ear is infected, and your cleaning is not clearing it up. Sometimes that is not enough. Try using some triple antibiotic ointment (available at any drugstore without a prescription). If it doesn't clear up in 2 days, please see your doctor or prompt care physician.See 1 more doctor answer
