About over month ago I got my ears pierced again ( above the first ones).Although, My left ear piercing was still very painful and its been over 12 weeks, The left ear piercing did tend to get caught on my pillow since i sleep on that ear but I still cleaned it daily. I finally took them out and noticed that they immediately became swollen and a hard lump seemed to form. I then noticed a clear like pus draining from the left piercing. what is this lump? could it be a sign of an infection?

Problem after ear piercing
Apply warm soaks to the ear lobe and see your doctor for antibiotics.
The piercing may close up. If so, have it re-pierced under sterile conditions by your regulator doctor or a plastic or facial plastic surgeon or dermatologist.
