Rash on face near tragus, itchy, no infection, drainage or fever. Any ideas?

Hello! I got my tragus pieced a few weeks ago. I ve been cleaning it twice a day with a mild soap and water/or saline spray. About a week ago I developed a slight rash on my face very close to the tragus, and a little on my ear lobe too. The itching has gotten very annoying. Yesterday I did go back to the guy that pierced it and he took out the ring and put in a stud. Told me to try that. Today it is still a little itchy. No infection, drainage or fever . Any ideas? Thanks.

Hi, Thanks for query.
It seems that you might be allergy to that particular ring giving rise to allergic reaction on the part.
Now as you removed the ring,it will be alright.
If rash is more and itching is there then you may take antihistamine like Cetrizine.
Ok and bye.
