How do i get rid of an infection./

im starting to think that my ear is infected just my left 1. if u have been following my posts i am gauging my ears and yesterday they swol up so big i couldnt even get the plug in. neway last night i realized that my lymph nodes behind my ears were swollen and painful, so i made the choice to go to the er and was told that was a stupid idea just for swollen lymph nodes. neway they are not as swollen as they were still painfull though, and my right ear is a bit swollen but looks fine and my left ear is still very swollen and tender, so im ghuessing its infected. now i have never had an ear pericing get infected b4, so does ne1 know what i can do to make it better?

  • I'm assuming an infection would require some sort of antibiotic?
    I don't think it was stupid for you to go to the er for that.
    Do you have a reg dr you could call?
