My cartialge peircing was getting infected, so I removed the earing, how should I treat it?

This is Leave it out and get thee to a doctor. It wouldn't hurt to clean it with the solution you were given, but probably that won't overcome the infection. Don't worry, people hardly ever lose their ears because of piercing.

I had the exact same problem 2 years ago. I got my left ear pierced, it got swollen after a couple of days, and my ear was almost twice its normal size. It was painful to sleep on that side.
But I always heard that the only way I could keep the piercing was if I didn't take it out, so I didn't. After a couple of weeks applying alcohol (it hurt like hell to clean it with that) it started getting better and I managed to keep it.
Nevertheless, the piercing took almost 1 year before I could stop worrying about taking care of it everyday.
But I love it and I really wanted it so I guess the effort was necessary.
