ears pierced 4 days ago. They are a bit swollen

User Profile
I just got my ears pierced 4 days ago. They are a bit swollen but not red or hot. I have cleaned them properly and have turned them everyday. They are a bit painful but not too much. Is the swelling normal or should I be worried?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Swelling is normal inflammatory response. Just clean the wound and take some ibuprofen for the inflammation. it should resolve in a week.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
