Piercing In The Baby’s Ear Continues To Discharge?
Hello, I have just given birth to my second anal, and I am a female. It’s been over 2 weeks since my child, I pierced his ears but still often secretes liquid that will dry up and turn yellow? Is that dangerous or not? And if I may know what liquid it is?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically after piercing, healing will occur in 4-6 weeks. During this healing period, it is very normal if the piercing still secretes clear yellowish fluid. The fluid is a plasma fluid that will come out when inflammation occurs and is useful for facilitating wound healing. As long as the liquid you see is clear in color (not cloudy like pus) and does not smell, then it is normal.
The following are the post-piercing treatments you need to know about:
Wash your hands with soap before touching or treating pierced wounds. After bathing the baby, clean around the area of the piercing with cleaning cotton (you can also use a cotton bud) that has been dipped in clean water to clean the remnants of soap / shampoo and also plasma that is dry around the piercing Avoid applying baby lotion on the piercing area Check the back of the piercing, especially after you bathe the baby and before the baby sleeps, clean it with no. 2 if it appears to be covered in a dry plasma, and make sure the earring (temporary earring used after the piercing) is securely locked. If you see pus in the piercing wound, the piercing wound gives off a bad odor, the area around the piercing looks red and swollen, immediately go to the doctor for further evaluation and treatment.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
