It is not uncommon to encounter infection of the lobe piercings. sometimes this comes about by skin allergy
to the metallic ear rings and subsequent infection by repeated scratching. If she has signs of acute inflammation e.g. redness
, discharge; She needs to be seen by an ENT fellow who will prescribe local antibiotics in the form of a cream as well as oral antibiotics
. One more thing you need to keep in mind is that the piercings may close as the wound heals,so some form of a stent
has to be in place, even a thread will do.
