  • You need to take her to the pediatrician. SHe may have an infection that will needs medicine, either oral or topical.. Ifections can spread, so don't ignore it.

  • Take her to the Dr. There is obviously some kind of localized infection.

  • lean her head over the sink and pour hydrogine proxide on her ear and dab at it with a tissue, keep putting that on every couple hours or so and in the next day or two id have her go see her doctor. Good luck!

  • this is normal for a young person to have there ears infected do to piercing. every morning and every night soak her ears in hydra-peroxide(this will sting and she may cry) if in a week it has not gotten better at all take her in to the doctor. just encase give the doc a call see what they suggest s .

  • Um... Antibiotics. Ever heard of them? If she was pierced with a gun, rather than a needle there is excessive scar tissue which is prone to infection. ***THIS*** is why parents need to stop mutilating their infants for the sake of fashion. (BTW, I'm not against piercing a child that is old enough to ask, to understand pain, and to care for them- but for the love of pete... piercing an infant is abuse!)
