welcome to healthcaremagic

it is quite common to have such a reaction after ear piercing, it is due to the allergic or infection caused by the ear ring or during the piercing.
just apply some antibiotic oint like betadine and it should be fine

Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

Such a reaction is commonly seen in people with ear-piercing.

It could be due to minor infections.Do apply antibaterial ointments like Bactroban which helps it to heal faster and not cause any complication.

Wish you good health.
