What is the solution for scar tissue in ear?

Okay, when I was little (say 6-8) I got my ears pierced. I had to let them close because we didn t have money to get the special earrings because I m allergic to the normal ones. I am now 14 years old, and I have scar tissue I think it is? It s in my left ear where I got the piercing. It s usually rod-like inside my ear. Well I was messing with it after my shower, (Like I usually do) and kinda hard white goo type stuff came out when I pushed on it. I guess there was already a very small hole it came out of? There wasn t blood or anything. An explanation would be nice, thanks. :)

Hi.
Thanks for your query, read and understood your concerns.
The white material out of the swelling on pressure indicates it was a cyst and this may noe heal.
If this recurs you may need a small surgery to get it removed completely.
This will solve your problems permanently.
Once it heals well,you can re- pierce and start using the rings as you now be affording.
