Greetings. This could be an infection or a granuloma formation at the site of tissue injury. Is there any pus discharge ? You may need a topical antibiotic cream for daily application for a week. Try wearing gold stud since allergy to silver jewellery is more common. See a qualified dermatologist near you. Warm regards
