Why is my orbital conch piercing still swollen?

I got it done almost a week ago, and on top of the ridiculous pain and itching , It is still extremely swollen. I have been cleaning it about 3 to 4 times a day with H2Ocean, but it still feels horrible. I've gotten other piercings like this and none of then were this bad.

Go to the doctor, it sounds like it's infected.

But it's not red or anything.

It's a cartilage piercing...they are high on the meter for soreness and infection. Why risk it...see a doctor.

The swelling may be as a result of accumulating fluid in the conch area. You can make the swelling go away by trying out a different cleaning agent. Make sure that you have it checked out by a doctor, for proper treatment.
