Infected orbital piercing??

I have my orbital pierced (a ring that goes through twice, of course, at the top of my ear in the cartilage) and I know it's super infected because the top hole is very red, painful and looks to be filled with fluid or something. I've heard these can become embedded in your ear but it's risky to take it out because it can close up and look weird and deformed or whatever.. So anyway, am I always going to have that bump, or is there a way to clear up the infection and have my ear go back to normal, AND still keep the piercing? Sorry this is long!! And thanks.
