Wash it with anti-bacterial soap and warm water. DO NOT USE peroxide on a piercing, it will make it worse!!!

No, do NOT take the piercing out. If the jewellery is removed, the openings of the piercing will close up and the infection will not be able to drain, which can result in an abscess. The basic steps in treating a wound infection include cleaning the wound, draining infected material and applying heat to promote circulation and stimulate the body's immune response. Antibiotics are sometimes used depending on the location and severity of the infection. Definitely see your piercer or doctor.
