Post Cartlidge Piercings

Hey ya'll. I have two piercings on my upper left ear, one which was new in April, and one that I've had for nearly three years. Recently, when I changed my new one for the first time, and also put a new hoop in my older one, they both became infected! I'm really upset because I have two small bumps on my ear! What can I do to make this swelling go away? Thanks!

The same thing happened with my cartilage piercing. It's like a white raised area? Try putting peroxide on it a couple of times a day. You maybe be able to get rid of the infection that way. Mine was really painful though and I had to let it grow back (which was a pain because it cost $20).
