How long will my rook piercing throb and stay swollen and red?

Please help! I had my rook pierced 2 weeks ago yesterday. It was fine until the beginning of this week when it started to swell, hurt, and turn red. Yesterday, it started oozing a yellowish greenish pus. I've cleaned it religiously 2 times per day with sea salt solution. Tonight, I cannot even wear my eye glasses because it hurts so bad. Thoughts, suggestions? Do I go to the Dr? What would they do for me? THanks much!
