    Alright I had my left helix pierced a while back. I gotta admit, I did not have this done professionally which I realize was dumb, but we did the best we could to make sure everything was sterile.

    Well it got rather infected, so I took it out, and made it a point to continue cleaning it like I have been. Well I took it out in May. To this day, I still have a sort of bump where the piercing was, feels like a small bead/ball is lodged in my ear, almost feels like a zit.

    I am assuming its infection related, but should I be a bit more worried? Maybe get it checked out?

    i believe it's probably a keiloid (sp?). it happens when a hole closes.
