I has my ears pierced (for a third time) about 5 weeks ago. They are still weeping and occasionally bleed but don't seem to be getting any better. I also had my first tattoo done 3 weeks ago, which seems to be healing ok. It was only a small simple tattoo. Then I ended up with toothache and was put on antibiotics a few days after the tattoo which resulted in having the tooth extracted just over a week ago. I was in a lot of pain after a few days and went back to my dentist who said it was infected and gave me more Amoxicillin which I finished yesterday. I have also developed a few large red patches of skin that my doctor says is a fungal type infection so I have Daktacort cream for that. Could the reason for my ears taking a long time to heal, my rash and my tooth extraction issues be due to me overloading my immune system? I am due to have my flu jab next week and worry that this could be a bad idea. Does anyone have any advice or recommend anything I can do to help? The site where I had my extraction is still very sore. Many thanks, Tracey
