How to get rid of keloid/bump as a result of tragus piercing? (Photo)

Hi, I got a tragus piercing done about 6 weeks ago. At the backside of the piercing (inner side of tragus), I got a bump and it is apparently getting bigger. I am really worried. Is it a keloid? How can I get rid of this? I am attaching the picture.

Apply Plato's Scar Serum, remove the piercing, and opt for surgical excision of your keloid.
