Since : Since I am not sure exactly where you are located, it's difficult to make any recommendations. I would suggest checking your local medical society and see who specializes in facial plastics and reconstruction. Sometimes doctors are willing via the internet to show pre and post op pictures of past patients to give you a feel for what might be able to be accomplished.

It : It depends where the hole is. If your piercing is through cartilage (something i don't recommend) you should see an ENT doctor right away. An infection involving the cartilage can lead to a deformed ear. In any event, blood clot expressed from a wound site could herald a potential infection as well. Again would suggest an ENT eval soon.

Two : Two areas of concern should be addressed. The first would be your sinuses. If there is an infection there this is could lead to breath problems. Your md should be able to help with this. The second area would be that of your teeth. Lack of flossing, periodontal disease, loose caps or fillings are all dental related causes that your dentist can help with.
