In brief: None

Chronic infections from piercings can damage skin and cartilage.
It is best to remove the peircing until the infection is resolved (usually with antibiotics). You may be able to re-pierce after healing. It is also possible that you do not have an infection, but rather an allergy to the type of metal. See a doctor.
