Bumpy scar: If there is a discharge. pain or redness you should be concerned of infection and have the ear lobe evaluated. However if the ear is dry and the ear has healed and there is only a pit left behind then this is most probably the scarred channel from the piercing that may or may not resolve on its own in time. Usually may stay there indefinitely. If troublesome please see your GP
