Is my cartilage piercing infected?

Got it done 4 days ago at a tattoo/ piercing shop and the guy did it with a needle. Its just red, swollen and sometimes throbs.

I've had this happen before so I'm going to say yes. I don't know what else to tell you other than to either clean it super super good and see if that helps or just take it out.

Give it a few more days if the swelling doesn't die down and it still hurts then take it out and let it grow in.

Put some neosprorin on it and see if that helps.

It's the healing process . It will go away just keep it clean and don't take it out
