Best Answer

My cartilage piercing on my left ear hurts on and off and I have to remove it for a little bit mine is nine years old and was done with a gun had problems from the start. My right one was done with a needle and is five months old had no problems with it ever and feels great. Try sea salt soaks. And if it don't help see your doctor.
