I went to to Docter and they took the earring out, lots of pus came out. I am taking antibiotics but the pus won t go away. I have already been to the Docter again so they could squeeze it out. It won t go away? Please help

History noted. Since you have been started with antibiotics, the infection will subside. Just one or two tablets of antibiotics for any reason will not help you. kindly complete the course as prescribed by your doctor. Mean while clean your earlobe daily twice with warm water and antiseptic solution, dry it completely with a clean piece of cloth and apply topical antibiotic ointment also. You will get cleared soon.
Good day.
