How To Heal Swollen Ear Lobe Around The Piercing

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.

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.
5to7 days: It takes 5to 7 days to heal if there is no infection.
Clogged pore: Your ear lobe has sebaceous glands like most areas of the skin. This can be clogged and become inflamed as a result. This causes it to become swollen and can be painful. Often, your body can resolve this on its own. If it is red, and painful, you may consider antibiotics.
See doc: May be infected. Perhaps allergic response to metal in ear rings. See MD.
A few things:
If there are no breaks in the skin, ice and an oral anti-inflammatory like advil can be helpful. If it looks very red, feels hot, is very tender, there is risk it may be infected and you might need antibiotics. Try to keep the area dry and clean. Hope this helps

Not typical: Autoimmune diseases can affect almost every organ in the body, however the ear lobe swelling is not associated w/ secondary Sjorgrens
Can you tell me if my ear lobe is swollen but doesn't hurt when I touch it does that mean the swelling might go down?

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.
