I got the top of my ear pierced (cartilage) 3 days ago, on the 2nd day when I woke up my ear had got swollen and red. My ear has been swollen and red since then, it still hurts a little bit, but thats normal. I have been using a ear spray that was given to me when i got them pierced, I was instructed to spray once at the back and once on the front of the piercing 3 to 4 times a day. Also my ear was pierced with a Stud Gun.
I was wondering...
•Is it normal for the swelling and redness, and it will eventually go away?
•Or if its not normal, how do i get rid of it, without having to take the earring out?
