Why is my right earlobe much more red and swollen then my left one after piercing it? I recently got my ears pierced and i've cleaned them with hydrogen peroxide by wetting a cotton ball with it and keeping it over the entry for 30 seconds.
My right earlobe is hot and red I've tried ice to cool it but it just heats up again what do I do?
Does it hurt?: If you have pain along with the redness, you may have an infection or a sunburn. If it is due to infection, you need to get seen very soon.
