Removed earrings, large knot on left ear, yellow pus on squeezing. Remedies for treatment?

Hello, last night I took out my earrings, and they felt normal, no knots or anything... Then just awhile ago, I went to go feel my ear, and only my left ear has a big knot in it, and when I went to squeeze it, didnt think anything would come out, yellow pus came out! Is there anything I can do for it without going to a doctor?

Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.
I read your query and as you said that your ear was ok in night as you wear out ear ring but suddenly after some time as you touch your ear lobule there you get a big knot. As you squeeze it yellow pus came out this indicates that there may be -
(1) Infected sabeous cyst.
(2) infected Keloid.
(3) Infected haematoma.
You should take antibiotic, anti inflammatory,and local antiseptic application. If you don't get response to it than consult surgeon to manage it.

With Regards.

Hi Melissa,
Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, it seems that you have got infection on the ear lobule.
You should consult a doctor and get the pus drained under aseptic conditions.

You can take pain killer like Ibuprofen twice a day after meals to reduce the pain and swelling.
Antibiotic can be added to control the infection. Culture/senstivity test of the pus discharge can be done to know the appropiate antibiotic for the causative organism.

I hope this is helpful to you.
