Ear Bleeding When Changing Earrings?
Hello, I just went outside and changed my usual earrings / fashion earrings …. when I came home and wanted to replace them with silver earrings, my left ear hurts, it hurts I continue to force it and it won’t take me long. strong I let go again. After that I compress it using warm water and there are blood spots, why do you think? And should I not wear earrings first? Thanks before…..
Complaints of ear pain accompanied by blood spots in the earpiece can be caused because you are allergic to the material of the earrings you are using. This condition is known as allergic contact dermatitis.
In some people earrings made of non-gold material make complaints of pain, swelling, bleeding, or pus in the part of the earring hole that is in contact with the earring. If such a reaction occurs, the exposure to the substance that makes the allergy should be stopped.
For now you can do the following tips:
Remove the earrings, temporarily avoid wearing them until the ear conditions heal
Express the earring holes with a cold compress
Clean with clean water or with liquid NaCl
Keep the ears clean and dry
Avoid squeezing or touching the earring holes too often
If the pain is very painful, you can take pain relievers
If the complaint is getting better, you can try using gold earrings with a higher carat content
If with higher grade gold earrings you still experience this, you can go back to using earrings that previously didn't cause allergies, or you don't need to wear earrings at all.
If the tips on the complaint do not get better, or until it fester, you should check with your doctor first so that you can provide more optimal treatment.
