How do I Care for my Child’s Pierced Ears?

Make sure that you clean the area well at least twice a day with rubbing alcohol. At the first sign of redness, itching, or pain, apply an antibiotic ointment to the earlobe.

If the redness gets worse or the earlobe becomes swollen, call your pediatrician right away, as an infection may be developing.
