Swollen after bashing tragus piercing. Redness. What should I do?
Hi, Roughly a year ago i got my tragus piercing done with you, and i had bashed it and it had swollen up. Since then i have managed to heal it however about a month ago i got my helix done and my tragus bar was changed to a smaller bar and now my tragus has swallen quite badly! its extremly red and like a big bubble i have been doing sea salt soaks but i cant get rid of it. What should i do?
hello. it is likely that the tragus has got infected. i would recommend you apply mupirocin ointment over the swollen tragus, twice a day and consult your ENT doctor for antibiotics for the infection. thanks
