I got my second piercing on my earlobes about 3-4 weeks ago and the swelling and pain went away on the 4th day, but suddenly last night my right ear started to give off some heat so I went to go clean it and saw that it was bleeding and very swollen, it didn't have discharged or any pain. I got a cartilage piercing on that ear too so I haven't been sleeping on that ear so I don't know why it was swollen. I clean it in a daily too. Is it infected?
