You shouldn't take infected piercings out. So, don't. Also, doctors tend to give stupid advice regarding piercings full stop. What jewellery is in the piercing, how old is it, how have you been taking care of it and do you have a picture?
Definitely definitely get the jewellery changed to a curved barbell by a proper piercer. CBRs suck in rook piercings (well, in most piercings, but especially cartilage). Then take a trip to the shop and get some 100% chamomile tea bags. Make the tea then once it's cooled a little - don't want to burn yourself - use the tea bag as a hot compress and hold it against the piercing for 10-15 minutes. Do that once a day, along with one sea salt soak per day too. Don't sleep on it or use the phone on that ear or anything like that. Try not to move the jewellery or touch it either.
you need 3 more to make the look work,
It'll suit you as long as you keep that exact same facial expression.
