What are these lumps on my ear lobe near my piercing?

I've had my ears pierced a long time ago when I was a kid, but I always get these lumps in the skin of my ear that get swollen and start hurting when I touch them. Then they go away and come back, this happens in both ears but I'm not sure if the piercing has anything to do with it. What are they?

    keloids (small bumps)… I have one because I kept touching my conch. apparently rubbing alcohol gets rid of them, but I havn’t tried it yet.

    They’re harmless as far as I know, and very common.

    If they’re large bumps, about the size of your thumb pad, it’s an infection. Take it out is my best suggestion….when I had my industrial pierced, it get infected so bad I had a huge lump in my neck, after I took it out the infection completely went away.
