Can nose picking make nose go bigger just as a stretched ear lobe (Piercing)? If not, how could the ear lobe be stretched?

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.

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.

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?

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?

Pus or fat: The ear lobe is skin covering only fatty tissue. If the ear lobe is not tender or red or painful, then it is unlikely you have infection or pus. The most likely substance would be fat. See and ENT or plastic surgeon for diagnosis and treatment.

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.

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?

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.

What's this lump in my ear lobe next to my piercing? Just noticed this morning. Slightly sore. I can move it a little beneath the tissue.

Early abscess: This could be acne but is probably an early abscess. You need to have it checked by a doctor. You may need an antibiotic. Please keep the ear ring area clean and dry. Good luck.

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.
