Tragus piercing and tooth aches. How can I get rid of this pain ?

Can a tragus piercing that got infected cause a toothache? I got my tragus pierced 4 months ago, and it has been inflamed for about three months. I soak it in saline solution everyday, but now what feels like a toothache has started. How can I get rid of this pain? (I am a healthy weight and height: 138 pounds and 5 feet 9 inches tall)

Hi,thanks for query.In case of persistent inflammation you have to remove the ear ring for it to subside.There is risk of the hole getting closed but you do not have choice.Because of persistent inflammation the local lymph node may got swollen and give rise to pain.It can not lead to tooth ache.bye.

Hi! I got my tragus piercing about 5 days ago,the area is a bit red, it is still bleeding a bit, and I have noticed that when I move the area around while treating it with aftercare it does hurt (I m I applying the aftercare too roughly?), and throughout the day there is moderate pain on the piercing and inside my ear. I wanted to know if that is normal at this stage, and if so, how long will the pain last.
