Hi,

Presence of inflammation and pus discharge indicates infection. Topical antibiotics alone not sufficient. You may need oral antibiotics also. You can take Amoxicillin Clavulanate antibiotics after your physician advice. It may spread rapidly and can damage the ear cartilage. You should remove the ornament and clean it thoroughly and wear once the inflammation settled.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Rajmohan, Pediatrician
