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:*:

Well u most likely have an infection which is very common(80% of people who get their cartalige peirced end up w/ it infected) My older sister got her cartalige pierced twice and both times it got infected. U might want 2 let it close cuz it could get worse

hope i helped

Yeah it's normal, it's just where the piercing went through, I got mine done back in February and I have a bump, so it's normal

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. =)

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!

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 :)

mysticpixie05 answered Monday August 23 2004, 1:08 pm:
no... thats not normal. it means that it is infected. you should either take the earing out and let it close up or consult your doctor on what to do.
