Is my ear going to fall off?
I have a cartilage piercing that's probably 10 years old. It was pierced by a professional and has had the same jewelry in it forever (a CBR). Last week, my ear started hurting and I figured I slept on it wrong. This morning I woke up and it is swollen.
When it gets to be a reasonable hour, do I call my piercer or my doctor, or both?
