SaraEliKirk answered Tuesday August 24 2004, 4:53 am: That happened to my sister, its normal, anytime you pierce something your body is gonna try to heal itself cause it thinks something awful is goin on, so tell your body to settle down, its ok the bump might be there for awhile but hopefully your ear will be too! :*:SaRa:*: [ SaraEliKirk's advice column | Ask SaraEliKirk A Question ]

XXhiGhMaIntEnCe answered Monday August 23 2004, 5:49 pm: I had a bump, its from them piercing it from a gun and not a needle. It's ok, it will go away eventually, mine did. Just keep putting the disinfected stuff they gave you for it! It will be sore for awhile! And when you switch your earring make sure you use the good kind not the cheap jewerly. Like 16 carot or 14 is ok. =) [ XXhiGhMaIntEnCe's advice column | Ask XXhiGhMaIntEnCe A Question ]

jbdreamer answered Monday August 23 2004, 5:13 pm: Well if you don't have a stud in your ear, the hole is trying to heal. You have to keep your earring in for quite sometime before you can take it out.
Or it could be...
My best friend had her cartilage peirced, and 2 weeks later, the earring was gone, she had assumed it fell out. A day later it was really sore and there was a bump. She went to the doctor and found out the skin had grown over the earring. Her body wouldn't accept the foriegn object. She had to have it sugicaly removed, and she can't have earrings now. So watch out! [ jbdreamer's advice column | Ask jbdreamer A Question ]
cutie_babee answered Monday August 23 2004, 5:11 pm: um it's normal I think but did you like take care of it twist it every now and then and um put alcohol on it everyday...cuz it might be infected and if so you'll need to take it out cuz it can get worst
Karen answered Monday August 23 2004, 5:08 pm: Yep, I got that when I got mine pierced but it went away. It happens when you sleep on that ear. Don't worry, it's normal. Hope I helped :) [ Karen's advice column | Ask Karen A Question ]
