Hello Doctor.

1 Answer:

Hello Kingkin, thank you for asking.


Maybe what you mean is the earring embedded in the skin around the piercing hole huh? Indeed, sometimes this can happen, because during the piercing wound healing, tissue may grow to cover some of the earrings. This may cause pain or itching and sometimes swelling. If your child is old enough, advise the child not to scratch his ear so that he doesn't blister. If the child is still small, cut the child's nails so that they are always short, so that if the child scratches his ear, there will be no injury.


You can take your child to see a general practitioner or pediatrician. The doctor will assess the condition of your child's ears. With local anesthesia, your doctor may free the earrings from the ear's skin tissue. There may be a slight bleeding, especially if the earring has been embedded quite deeply. Make sure the child is calm and do not panic when seeing bloody ears. The bleeding will stop immediately after the wound is pressed for several minutes. Afterward, the doctor may give the ointment to the piercing wound to prevent infection.


Hopefully this answer can help. Regards.
