Can I take Ampilox DS for pus in an ear pierce wound ?

I pierced my ear to wear an ear ring two months back. Now I am having pain along with pus formation. I have tried out boroline heated along with betadine but of no avail. I have been told to take Ampilox DS. Please suggest what to do and whether I should take the medicine.
