I read your question and i understand your concern. With recent piercing in ear, swelling is normal and may take a while a couple more days to subside. Just keep the wound clean and aseptic and apply some topical antiseptics over it. Take some advil or tylenol for the pain and swelling.
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.
