This happens because of perichondrial irritation after piercing and possibility of keloid formation also increases. It is not infection. Please remove any stuff you are wearing in that pierced area for some days and apply Neosporin-H ointment over it.

It seems that there is some infection took place at the site.
Remove earrings, clean the site properly and apply antibiotic cream.
if there is no improvement then go for one short antibiotic medicine course to cure infection.
Ok and take care.
