Will I Get An Ugly Scar From Eyebrow Piercing After It Got Infected
Hope not: I hope the piercing has been removed. If not, it needs to be. The brow is a pretty forgiving area as regards scarring. The main thing is to keep the site clean by washing with soap and water several times a day, perhaps apply Bacitracin ointment after washing, and generally get the infection cleared up asap.
