Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

This can still be infected by the way from piercing.

The skin bacteria can invade inside causing the inflammation.

Hence antibiotic course should be considered.

The swelling and hotness can be reduced by over the counter ibuprofen or advil tablets.

3 tablets at a time every 8 hours with food should help.

Topical hydrocortisone cream also can be applied.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
