    Double cartilage pierced, what should I expect?
    I resently got my cartilage pierced on my right ear in two places. It's been almost five days and it's not swollen, red, and it hurts. Should I take it out or is this normal ? Cuz I'm freaking out

    It is swollen sorry!

    Hello, I had a scaffolding piercing a few weeks ago but to my disappointmentI had to have it removed after 2 weeks of having it as it got really badly infected I experienced dark yellow pus coming out of both holes, swelling (was a big difference to my other ear) throbbing and it was hot to the touch. The best thing to do is go back to the person that pierced it because they can give you the best advice. I went back to mine and he practically begged meto take it out because he could tell that my ear wasn't agreeing to it. I had to go to the doctors after he removed it for antibiotics. I'm not saying yours will be infected but if you're worried either go back to where you had it done or go straight to the doctors but what ever you do, do not remove it yourself because you can drag the infection into the fresh holes good luck x
