Is my old ear piercing infected?

So yesterday I took out these tiny gold studs I had been wearing for 4 months (gross, I know). A few minutes later, my left ear lobe has been itching and sore like hell.

Below is my normal right piercing.

  • Yup looks infected to me... you need to clean the jewlery 3 times a day with alcohol (the post). Clean both sides of ear with some sterile saline on a cOtton swab and put some Antibiotic ointment on the post before reinserting to heal up right.

  • In my experience your piercing would be like that if you rarely clean the thing. Beside if your earrings is not pure gold it would effect the skin like that.

  • It looks infected. It's red, swollen, and probably is painful to the touch.
