Had ears pierced. Why did they bleed? Why the swelling?

I ve had my ears pierced for 6 weeks now, and three days ago one of them started bleeding . The other was fine, until today, and now it s also bleeding. The swelling on the first one went down overnight, but I m really worried that my piercings are infected. Are they? Also they re my second piercings on the lobe, but will they affect the first ones?

Thanks for your query.
I understand your concern
As per your description it seems that it us infected.
I suggest you to apply cold lamentation over it and apply topical antibacterusl like mupirocin 2times a day.
In case it persist get yourself examined by doctor as course if oral antibiotic will be needed.
Hope this helps.
Godds bless.
