I tried removing the earring back to give it breathing space, but it only made it now come out on the surface of my ear as well. What could this be?.and how do i get rid of it It hurts only wen i squeeze it as in try to pop it.

Hi, Bossy.
Thanks for query.
It seems that you got infection in piercing point.
Go for short antibiotic medicine course.
Go for regular dressing for some time.
Remove ear ring for few days till wound is healed up.
Ok and bye.
