In brief: Ear lobe infection

You have ear lobe infection from ear piercing.
The infection may occur because of contamiation during ear piercing or afterward. The best thing to do is to remove the ear rings and start taking an antibiotic to get rid of the infection. You should wait several months before you have your ears pierced again.
