Is it normal for my ear piercings to hurt when I clean them?
I just got them pierced 4 days ago and until yesterday they didn't really hurt when I cleaned them. But now they kind of sting when I push them back and forth, and then afterwards they are red and irritated as well as a little itchy. This goes away after about half an hour though. Is this normal or could my ears be infected? I'm really paranoid because I had my ears pierced before when I was little and they got infected. By the way, I got them pierced at Claire's and am using the Claire's Ear Care stuff they give you.
