Patient Question

Hello Doctor,

 

Is there a method to alleviate the redness surrounding my pierced middle finger without removing the piercing?

 

Answered by Dr. Aditya Favade

Hello,

Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.

 

Infections are not very common, particularly if you're diligent about caring for the piercing afterward. However, they can still occur since piercing involves creating an opening in the skin, which can allow bacteria to enter. Nonetheless, there's no need to be overly concerned

 

Thanks
