Patient :Yesterday a friend of mine pierced my ears for me with a piercing gun. He cleaned the tools and earrings before he did it, but today I woke up to extremely sensitive, red, throbbing ears. I slept on my side last night for alittle bit so I'm unsure as to whether the sensitivity and redness is from sleeping on it, or if is possibly an infection. is this a normal thing that happens after ears are pierced ? or should I be worried ?
