You should go see your piercer about this

not true. though at this point there it's too bad for the piercer to do anything. if you get it done by a professional they don't have a problem with you calling to ask questions or coming in for help with changing jewelry or discussing concerns.

Normally, I hate it when people give sincere advice on FML, but #3 is on point. If you hold on to the ear after removal, it makes an incredibly romantic gift, too.

The piercing is protecting itself from you. This is phase one of its takeover. You'll know phase two has begun once your hand is bigger than your face and you start hearing the voices. (Okay, now somebody hit the OP's hand)

Well doctors are trained in the knowledge of the body.... I would definitely suggest a doctors visit because any decent piercer would know they can't do anything about an allergic reaction and would tell OP to see a doctor anyway.

Pease see a doctor! Your piercer can do nothing at this point and you'll most likely be put on some form of antibiotics to help your ear. At least now you know about your allergy and can avoid this in the future.


If it is an allergy, an antibiotic will do absolutely nothing. Please don't spread antibiotic resistance. Antibiotics are for bacterial infections only. An anti-inflammatory medication would actually be most effective.

#10 is wrong. An allergy can trigger your body to attack itself and it never heals, even once the allergy trigger is removed. You then need antibiotics to clear it up.

I think #9 said antibiotics because OP mentioned having an infection from their allergy. If it's swollen, I'd try warm water and sea salt. Not sure how much that helps with allergic reactions but that's what I use when I clean my piercings.

If skin/some kind of growth has grown over the back of the piercing so that you can't remove it, having it removed cleanly by some kind of medical professional is safest. It will hurt, but you may not be able to use the piercing if you try it yourself. I hope it all goes okay OP! Best of luck
