Purging And Bleeding Bumps Appear In The Pierced Hole?
Hello, 1 month ago I pierced 2 piercings in my left ear. the 1g did not happen and was fine, but only today piercings in the cartilage appear lumps like pimples, festering and bleeding. Then I took the earrings off. Why is that?
Hello Chika, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Reading your complaint, the complaint could have been caused by:
Infections on the pierced abscess Allergic reaction to the earring used along with the infection. To confirm the condition, it is advisable to have your complaint checked by a doctor for a direct examination of the condition of your ear. After being confirmed directly, then you can also determine what therapies / actions should be taken to resolve your complaint.
In the meantime, your action is correct in the form of removing the earrings. Also not recommended to use the earrings again unless the complaint has improved or there is further advice from a doctor.
For the time being it is also advisable to clean the pus that comes out using a clean gauze cloth that has been given a special liquid cleaning wound (NaCl) and then can also be applied povidone iodine liquid in the area that has complaints until there is further advice from your doctor.
It is not advisable to use any topical or oral medication without a clear recommendation from a doctor to avoid worsening complaints.
I hope this helps.
