Um, most piercings dont turn PURPLE whn infected, though that COULD be this case, But, it could also just be BRUISING bruises are red/purple/blue and you did get a hole into your ear, when I had my industrial done it turned a purpleish red it around it, and I asked my piercer my case was bruising, but it could be either or for your case. Id say go to a PIERCER meaning at a tattoo-piercing parlor and ask them, before going to the doctor, the piercer will know more about it. bes of luck
yes, its infected
purple should not be a colour you see on a piercing
and it indicates an infection or the skin around it could even be dying
you need to go to a doctor and ask them if its going to be ok or if you need to take it out
dont bother going back to the piercer if it was done in a salon or mall because those people arnt profesional piercers and they wont have a clue what to do
stupid its infect no shit go to the doctor dumb as*How do you tell if your ear piercings are infected?
umm normaly yes but if it doesnt have puss it might not be but get it checked outwhich ear does a boy pierce his ear the right or left???
