My daughter's ear piercing is infected. What is the best way to treat? I normally use peroxide.?
It's scabby from the puss, and she says it's soar. Normally the peroxide will do the trick, but is there a better and quicker way to clear it up?

just salt water is good for cleanin.
dont over clean or use to many products

sea salt dissolved in warm water helps really well, soak the end of a q-tip in it and clean around the stud on both front and back, (using different ends of the q-tip)

I did this twice a day for a week and the infection was gone, just make sure she isn't playing with them in between cleanings, as that can cause you to back track

yea peroxide take some antibiodics.

the best thing to do is dont take it out then it just spreads just use salt water or go to a peircing store and get what they use when they peirce ears it's some sort of water type liquid and use it 3 times a day its a spray so you dont have to touch her ear... main thing either the liquid or the salt water...

Usually when the person pieces your ears they give you some special cleaning stuff. Take the earrings out and wash them and clean the ear and then put it back in, if that doesn't work go see the doctor or person that pierced your daughter's ears.

*Brianna Nicole*
I actually don't really suggest using peroxide - it can dry out the surrounding skin. Does she have a cleansing solution that was given to her at the time of her piercing? If not, I suggest purchasing one. If she did get one and it is not helping, maybe salt water can do the job. Hope I could help & good luck! :)

Peroxide then put neosporene on it.

Keep putting peroxide on it and if it doesn't clear up in a couple days or if it gets worse, go to a doctor. After a certain point, it's so infected that the only way to reverse it is with antibiotics.

Peroxide is the best, keep putting that on, then dry it, and put Neosporin on. Do this as many times a day as you can, ie, Attacking the problem as much as possible. The Neosporin loses its effectiveness, as does anything left in the air too long, so clean it off, and re-apply it 3 or 4 times a day, or more. The more you attack the problem, the sooner it will go away, and this holds true with a lot of problems. I had the same problem when I first got my ears pierced, with a hot needle and ice! Ow!

Best way is to take some antibiotics orally.For local treatment put some antibiotic ointment on the site of infection like Polysporin.
If she gets fever you should take her to the Doctor.

if it is tender, hot to touch or have secretions like pus, i suggest take her to a doctor.
else, just pour some clean water and place a warm towel over her infected ear.

A triple Antibiotic ointment like Neosporin.

If that doesn't take care of it within a few days, take her to the doctor. It might be too strong of an infection for over the counter treatment.
