    The antibiotics seem to be doing the job well. It's not even 36 hours since I got them and the swelling has almost gone.

    Does having an infection mean you have to keep the jewellery in for 4 weeks before changing again? Or can I still change in a couple of weeks (6 weeks from piercing)

    (Still keep up with the sea salt soaks and everything though its important to drain the area well). Yes you are going to need to take it easy with this one. I say leave all lobe piercings in for 8 weeks anyway because not all people heal at 6 and whats 2 extra weeks just to get a nice health piercing? :P

    I'd leave it till you reach the 8 week mark and see how it feels, if they are still sore in any way (even after sleeping or knocking them) then leave it another week or so before taking them out.

    OK thanks very much

    It's pretty much better now. No more redness and the swelling isn't really noticable.
