Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • It obviously is an infection from the piercing. To cure that you have to take the following measures.
  • Remove the piercing. If pus comes out of piercing hole, squeeze it gently and put warm compresses to ease draining.
  • I suggest her Cefuroxime syrup 250 mg per 5 mL a teaspoon twice daily for 7 to 10 days. I also suggest Erythromycin gel locally, twice daily. Consult her doctor, discuss with him or her and take the treatment with consent.
