    Unhappy Painful bump on the back of ear piercing - How to get rid of it? PLEASE HELP

    So, I have bump on the back of my ear piercing and it's nothing like the bumps I've had before. Those bumps that I've had before were small and filled with pus and they eventually went away with aspirin and salt water. But this one is different. It's very painful, big and gross. I think it appeared because I slept on my piercing side and the earring was very tight. How can I get rid of it?
    Sorry if the pics aren't very clear, I struggled a lot to take them.

    Really struggling to work out what that is,.. three make it look like a pimple type thing, but then in the bottom right view it looks like a teeny blow out ;o Are they regular sized holes or have you stretched them?

    1. How was it pierced? (gun/needle)
    2. What jewellery do you have in there normally? (Barbell, butterfly back etc)
    3. What is the jewellery made from?
    4. How old is the piercing?
    5. Have you been putting anything on it?

    Looks to me like a reaction to ill-fitting jewellery and irritation.
