I got my ears pierced under a week ago, and hve noticed it looks bruised around one of the piercings. my mum doesnt think it is infected as it isnt swollen, leaking pus, hot or red. kind of worried it is, although ive been turning it and been putting surgical spirit on it everyday? any advice would be brilliant.
I don't think a bruise represents an infection :) If you develop any more problems with your ears you may actually be allergic to the kind of metal. I've had my ears re-pierced 3 times, all because I thought they were infected and I would let them close up. Now I know that I'm allergic to everything but white gold. Ears are weird.
