Do you want to learn about how to get rid of puss in earlobe? Having puss in the earlobe is not a good thing. It usually means you tried to get a piercing or tried to do a self-piercing, but another kind of earlobe injury happened. Having puss in your earlobe most likely means that there is an infection and having your doctor take a look is a good idea.
Here are some other signs of infection:
- Swollen or reddish earlobe – You have redness in your earlobe.
- Tenderness – Tenderness of the earlobe.
- Swelling/puss – The earlobe is swollen and or puffy, and you can actually push the puss out of it if you press your earlobe (not a pretty picture).
- Stingy pain – Your earlobe has a stinging pain or sensation coming from it.
If you have some or all of the symptoms above, you really need to go to the doctor. You'll probably just need to take an antibiotic for a few days until the symptoms clear up and are completely gone. If your ear was just a little red and tender from a piercing, you may be able to get away with just using the cleansing solution you got from the professional earlobe piercing salon. Having the puss in your earlobe, however (and any other symptoms!), is definitely not going to clear up with just a little ear piercing solution or hydrogen peroxide.
If you feel uncomfortable going in to your doctor, you could just call and talk to a nurse. Be warned, though, that they are probably going to send you back to the appointment scheduling desk to make sure the puss in your earlobe gets checked out.
