Lip piercing effecting my ears?
Posted on: 09/09/2002
I just got my lip pierced a few days ago and everything went well. It is healing beautifully and the discomfort is almost gone. Since I had this done my left ear has been plugged and I am experiencing pain in it. It feels like I have a piece of cotton stuck way up in there. Is there any connection between my ear and my lip??? Can the piercing which is normal and healing fine have anyting to do with my soar ear????
Now an Acupuncturist might know if there is something about piercing lips that is bad for ears! Us regular doctors don't know of any connection. Painful ears can be caused by an ear infection, so if you are still sore, see a doctor and have that ear looked at.
