Can you get an infection in a ear piercing you've had for 10+ years? If so what kind?
I have had my ears pierced for 10+ years and recently just got them pierced again right next to the old piercing. Now, my left, older piercing seems to be infected or something. it is red, crusty and bleeding a little. It feels tough and there is a white part of the skin/ear around the piercing that is white, tough and can be grabbed with tweezers but is still attached and feels just like a piece of dead skin. I've been trying to look it up but haven't had any luck so far. I'm kind of worried as to what this might be!?
