I got a lump in my ear! What I do?

Two months ago, approximately, I made a perforation in the ear and a couple of days ago I wanted to change the piece when you feel suddenly that I had a small tiny bump and it hurt. Remove the piece does not note that supuraba a little. I am concerned that it is a keloid! Will send message to the person that eme did the piercing and I said that is because I sleep on that side, it really only told me that and that will avoid sleeping on the side of the piercing. I did another couple of questions, but that's obvious since I did not answer. I'm still taking care of wash in the morning and the evening.

I. Hi Gaby, sorry, if you please could send us (or tell us) a screenshot only of the inflamed area, it would be of great utility to be able to stick to what happens. For my part, in these cases quite usual to place a piercing, always said that can be a remove a keloid (scar tissue after doing the piercing), generally having the following appearance, ![](//blob.todoexpertos.com/uploads/md/4c26a5c94157f6c2d3229cc2a114a78c.jpg) ![](//blob.todoexpertos.com/uploads/md/9310b7bd59d8016fb7220fe4a41ce208.jpg) [https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queloi](https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queloide) No domino this topic but based on other queries here I have been reading in the last few months, apparently in many of these cases it is necessary to keep waiting, 'endure' a little more and continue with the medication and care that we have proposed in the site where we have done the piercing, this is for two main reasons \- The cartilage of the ear is more sensitive than other parts of the body, so in principle you need more time to adapt to the change. \- There is often a certain 'rejection' and because it is almost always tissue takes time to assimilate the drilling and the permanent contact with a foreign body. Hopefully an expert can confirm or deny this to guide you better. Here a companion explains to us in what consists the inflammation, keloid, and in what ways we can treat it, [https://lauzuricaderma.com/2014/09/11/cicatriz-queloide-y-piercing-en-la-oreja/](https://lauzuricaderma.com/2014/09/11/cicatriz-queloide-y-piercing-en-la-oreja/) [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tf3qfx4GMxs&feature=emb\_logo](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tf3qfx4GMxs&feature=emb_logo) A fellow expert has provided the following basic steps: \*\*_Limpia your cartilage at least once a day with saline solution and sea salt; if it is before bedtime, the better. If you sweat a lot during the day, clean everything a couple of times a day, but don't go overboard, because this will delay the healing process._ _Lava your hands and move the piece in the drill to lose anything that has been segregated and will stick to the cartilage._ _Usa cotton sterile saline solution and sea salt._ _Después apply the mixture, dry with care. Should not have excess moisture because there are created infections. That's why sweat is bad, because we want to keep it dry._ Which at least about 2 weeks, keep your hair away from the piercing to avoid dirty and that your natural oil will damage it._ _No sleep on that ear and clean the sheets every 4-5 days.\*\*_ A little more information, [http://tatuaje-y-piercing.blogspot.com.es/2009/01/soluciones-piercing-con-problemas.html](https://tatuaje-y-piercing.blogspot.com.es/2009/01/soluciones-piercing-con-problemas.html) In case you have an infection such as has commented on the expert Majo, you can see a white liquid.. in these pages is this another problem. Any other details you can tell us will be of great utility, lots of encouragement,
