Ears infected after wearing artificial jewellery. Why does pus and blood ooze?

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?
