K so right now my ear really hurts and it's warm. And even my cheek closest to the piercing is red. It's not going away and now I'm worried.. Help!
could be irritation try not wearing earings for a couple of days and seeing if that helps, also if your ear smells funny then that can be a good sign of it too, granted i dont have peirceings but thats what my friends tell me.
Redness, or darkening of the piercing, discoloration, swelling, discharge, pus, sharp pains when touching it, fevers, warmth, nausea, chills, swollen lymphs, strange bumps.
