Stinging Pain In The Piercing Scar In The Upper Ear?
, 1 week ago I pierced the upper ear. Now after one week of waiting, I feel sore and angry again, why is that? R nIs it because of the shampoo when I wash my hair? The problem is that the symptoms occur after I wash my hair, already starting to get sick and sore again. R nSo you have to make gumna right? Thank you
Hi Icha, Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The pain you feel can be caused by:
an unhealed piercing wound infection of the piercing irritation from an earring or something else Did you use the same shampoo? If so, then the pain is not caused by using the shampoo itself but because it might irritate a wound that hasn't healed completely.
Consult with your doctor further, especially if this ear area becomes red and sore. The doctor will need to do an examination of your ear to determine the next treatment. In the meantime, keep the area dry and clean. Avoid exposing the wound to water until the wound has healed well.
