Ear infection causing pus formation and bleeding on using artificial earrings, using Mupirocin ointment. Suggestions?

I got my ears pierced in May 2012 and i was wearing a silver earring. Everything was fine. So fine that i changed to an artificial earring in the end of June. After that my ears got infected. So i switched to neem sticks instead of any earring. Pus formation is there and sometimes blood oozes out. Currently i am using Mupirocin ointment. Please suggest what to do?

Thanks for the query.

You might have developed bacterial infection.

Its good that you are using mupirocine,

but its better if the choice of antibiotics is based on culture and sensitivity tests.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.
