Dear DustyAngel57: Pain can vary dramatically from person to person. It can be increased if there is infection, bruising, scarring or injury. If there is excessive redness, any drainage, if it feels warm to touch, or if you have a fever, you should call right away. Otherwise, you may want to let your doctor know of the pain and see if this is within his/her expectation of what you should be experiencing. He/She may also recommend a medication to help relieve the pain.
