Pierced ear has lump?
My daughter's left earlobe has a lump in it. The first time we got it pierced it was too low and at an angle, so we had it redone about a year later. (It's been 10 months now). She had a little lump that I assumed was a scar from the old hole healing. But sometimes when we change earrings I have to push to get the earring all the way in. Last night it seemed like the bump was a little bigger and there was a bit of blood when I cleaned her ears. I squeezed a little bit and got out just a tiny bit of pus and then a bit more blood. We put the earring back in using neosporin (I had to force it a bit) and then I cleaned her ears with hydrogen peroxide that she said stung a bit. Am I doing the right thing?

It sounded like scar tissue at first but as I read, it sounds more like an infection. Just keep it clean and continue to use a triple antibiotic ointment. If she must wear the earings make sure you clean them w/ alcohol first. If it continues to worsen she may need antibiotics. Just watch it for now.

First of all, you should probably take it out! It can get infected with dead skin cells, and it will be extremely unpleasant for her.

How was her piercing done? By a needle, or by a piercing gun? If it was done by a piercing gun, you have your culprit right there. Piercing guns are first of all extremely unsanitary, as they are only wiped clean with alcohol and then just reused on another person. Secondly, they do a great deal of damage to your ears. I had my ears pierced as a child with a piercing gun, and I have a lump too....that I've had for god knows how long, and will probably have it the rest of my life. My second set of holes are so bad that I stopped wearing earrings in them years ago. They are lumpy and hurt too bad to even put earrings in. Piercing with a gun does more harm than good. You are basically forcing a blunt object through your ear (since they actually pierce you with the earring, instead of using a needle) Let's not forget to mention the fact that the earring is entirely too tight in the hole it has created, giving the new piercing no room to heal properly. I'm suprised they still use the things.

At any rate. Have it take it out and let it heal properly. She probably won't be able to get rid of the lump completely. Buy her some tea tree oil, have her massage it onto her lobe a few times a day...for a while. This should help reduce the lump a little bit anyway. Go to a professional piercer and have them do it. It might cost more, but atleast you know your daugther's ears will be safe.

the same thing happened to my sister, the lumps grew til she had four biggish (size of small peas.. she was three at the time and it wasnt pretty) lumps. my mother tried everything but she is almost 11 now and she still has those lumps (but they dont look as bad cos she is bigger...)

I have had the exact same thing has happen to me before. The lumps? Probably scar tissue/ probably infection. Either way, keep an eye on it. As far as cleaning, I did just about the same type of "treatment" to my lobe except I used rubbing alcohol instead of hydrogen peroxide. A fact...(not too well known)...is that hydrogen peroxide actually deteriorates tissue. The "white bubbling" that occurs when peroxide is used as an antiseptic, is the cleaning/destroying of infected tissue...as well as healthy/non infected tissue! This is why hydrogen peroxide is not usually found in a first aid kit. So, go with the rubbing alcohol instead. It will heal up and rid the infection much faster. FYI- The rubbing alcohol will sting a bit too, sorry. Good luck

That sounds like that some scar tissue broke off. Just keep peroxide, and rubbing alcohol on her lobe, that should work. but scar tissue is normal after piercings.

I had my ears pierced years ago and had the same problem. I had the lump inside one of my lobes. It never did go away, no matter what I did. I tried putting neosporin on the earring post too, but it didn't make the lump go away.
After years of having to "re-pierce" my ear every time I put in earrings (and it DID feel like my ear was being re-pierced!), I stopped wearing earrings.
It took years before the lump finally dissolved by itself. I don't have any holes in my ears now, so I'm pretty sure they could be pierced again.
If I were you, I'd stop doing the earring thing and let them grow back. Later, if she wants, she could probably get her ears re-pierced. It really does "sting", so don't keep putting her through that.

A lump? Maynot be good. Friend pierced her ear and after a while the lump just got better, she had to get it removed and got stiches in her ear, but I could totally be wrong. I've had my ear pierced 5 times and my first time they were really infected. Two things make sure she dosen't touch them, and clean them every singel day!!
