My ears piercing holes are watery and get crispy. They also get very itchy.my ears don't hurt. Why is it doing this and how can I stop it?

Allergy

Pruritis
You may have developed a contact allergy to an earring you have been wearing. Give them a rest don'twear earrings for a few days and see an allergist to get a patch test to determine what metal you are allergic to. It is probably nickel.

I have small bumps on both my ears(worse on ear w/ the helix piercing) they are small and a little paler than my skin color, itchy sore to the touch,?

Cartilage

Body_piercing
This sounds like one of the frequent complications of piercing cartilage anywhere in the body. Doing this is a big risk, because cartilage contains NO blood vessels, and often reacts to the injury of piercing by growing together erratically. You really need to see a dermatologist, but first remove ALL your piercings, let the wounds heal, and never pierce cartilage again!!

Common allergies after piercing are NICKEL sulfate from metal and reaction against missguided use of antibiotics on the skin. Allergies to bacitracin, neosporin, trirlple antibiotic , and nickel are the most common of all contact allergies. A dermatologist will help you. Usually infections are not itchy.
