Auricular piercing, including earlobe piercing, is the most popular procedure for penetration of jewelry into the body. As the number of preferred auricular piercings is increasing, the number of related complications is also increasing. Complications following piercing procedures are variable and various treatments have been introduced. I aimed to introduce the various complications that arise after auricular piercing and suggest appropriate treatments based on my clinical experience. I conducted article reviews and reflected on clinical experience to discuss the appropriate treatments for complications after piercing. There have been advancements in understanding of complications after auricular piercing and its treatments. The sharing of this knowledge has led to improved treatments and management. Auricular piercing is a simple procedure, but the treatment of complications is often difficult and troublesome. As the number of preferred piercings is increasing, research on the treatment of complications should be continued.

Abstract

Auricular piercing, including earlobe piercing, is the most popular procedure for penetration of jewelry into the body. As the number of preferred auricular piercings is increasing, the number of related complications is also increasing. Complications following piercing procedures are variable and various treatments have been introduced. I aimed to introduce the various complications that arise after auricular piercing and suggest appropriate treatments based on my clinical experience. I conducted article reviews and reflected on clinical experience to discuss the appropriate treatments for complications after piercing. There have been advancements in understanding of complications after auricular piercing and its treatments. The sharing of this knowledge has led to improved treatments and management. Auricular piercing is a simple procedure, but the treatment of complications is often difficult and troublesome. As the number of preferred piercings is increasing, research on the treatment of complications should be continued.
