Pierced Ears: How to Prevent Painful Infections
Driven by family tradition or fashion, thousands of kids get their ears pierced each year. Generally, ear piercing is a safe procedure, but a common complication is infection.

When you support Nationwide Children’s, you help kids everywhere and support life-saving research and care in The Heart Center, Neonatology, Center for Colorectal and Pelvic Reconstruction, Hematology/Oncology and BMT, Neurosciences, Tissue Engineering, BPD and all of our nationally ranked clinical programs.
