Ear holes with pus and blood after ear piercing. What can be done?

I'm 22 years old. I got my first ear piercing about 4 months ago. I have been having issues with them lately and take the earrings out completely to clean the holes with the solution and clean the earrings with hydrogen peroxide. Today, I took a look and the left one is tight and has pus and blood the right one has blood and I had trouble getting the earring back in. The left one I did not take out to the right one having trouble. What should I do?

Hi and thanks for the query,
You should be allergic to the foreign material, which is the ear ring, which has certainly been infected by normal skin bacteria. Its important to clean around the infected area especially now. I suggest you sue some anti septics fluid like Povidone to clean this ear area. Anti inflammatory drugs in case of pain or persistent inflammation might be required , like Ibuprofen to control these symptoms. Ascertaining quantity of pus draining might also require prescription of an antibiotic. In case, it becomes really serious or persistent, consulting your primary care physician could be very useful.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
