Is it normal that my ear is a little bit swollen after I pierced it?

I got it pierced last Monday with a gun at Walmart & I've been cleaning it daily twice. It doesn't hurt & it's not discharging anything it's just a little swollen & a little bit red. Is it normal?

A sharp item was driven through living flesh. If COURSE its normal for it to swell.

Its totally normal to have swelling on your ears, because your ears aren't used to the piercing yet. Once your ears get used to it (in a day or two), the swelling will disappear :)

Yes. Ice it. Then make sure you clean your ear with alcohol three times daily and turn your earring. Apply an antibiotic cream daily turn regularly. Do not put cheap earrings in for at least 6 months you'll not have problems you follow this b
