Treatments

If you have any complications after piercing, these treatments could be helpful. It is advisable you see a physician before taking any treatment for any of the above mentioned complications.

1. Abscesses and infections related to pierced ears usually will respond to an oral antibiotic.

2. Superficial skin infections can best be treated with a topical antibiotic.

3. Allergic reactions are usually caused by certain metals. Avoid metals that you have allergies to, and use topical steroids to help recover from the allergic reaction faster.

4. Embedded earrings are usually caused by using spring-loaded guns. Surgical removal of the earring is commonly necessary, but only requires local anesthesia and a small incision.

5. Keloid scarring generally will require surgical removal, corticosteroid injections, or radiation/laser therapy.

6. Traumatic tearing from an earring may be repaired by simply suturing the ear (for simple tears) or more extensive surgical repair for severe tears. (Mayo Clinic)
