    Go back to your piercer. If you aren’t near your piercer, go to any reputable piercer in your area. It could be an abscess, like what happened when I got mine done. Are you cleaning it regularly and following the instructions that were given to you when you got it done?

    Don’t turn it. And just soak the gunk off. Use a q-tip to get to fiddly bits.
    Just leave it alone when you aren’t cleaning it.

    If it gets a bump(hypertrophic scarring), cartilidge piercings often do, do warm, hot cammomile teabag soaks once day.
    Or a drop of emu or tea tree oil once a day.

    I have my tragus pierced.. and i got one of those too.
    I wasnt really cleaning it as much as i was supposed to,
    And about 3 weeks after i noticed i had one of those bumps.
    you ARE supposed to turn the piercing to clean off the gunky stuff.
    And wash the piercing with antibacterial hand soap ( i use dial) everyday. NOT the piercing hole, just the piece of jewelry.
    Also use the cleaning stuff they gave you when you got it pierced twice a day.
    Also use hydrogen peroxide everyday to clean the hole.
    once its infected and has the bump you’re going to want to do that.
    If it dosent go away after a few weeks, go back to your piercer.

    Hope i helped(:

    okay you shouldn’t be turning it during the first month or so because its really healing and shouldn’t be disturbed, that is probably why a bump is starting.
    here are some things you can do:
    -DONT sleep on it
    - soak it in 1 cup of water with 1 tsp non iodized sea salts for 5-10 mins a day
    - clean it with a neutrogena/cetaphil soap gently once or twice a day

    basically just let it rest and heal and don’t stress it and the bump will go away
