I got my helix pierced just over a week ago now and it’s been fine until I fell asleep on it and knocked it a couple of times. Since then my ear has been extremely swollen and painful to the point were the piercing looks like it’s being swollowed into my ear! I have been giving it salt water baths twice a day and been taking ibuprofen to stop swelling, but i am panicking abit and I am just looking for some more advice!

You should be able to go back to the shop that you got it done by so they can give you some advice.

I went to another piercing place yesterday and had a man look at it and he just said it’s extremely swollen and it should go down soon

You can use some ice to help with it and ibuprofen. If you’re worried about it being infected I’d seek further advice.
