She is most probably developing " Perichondritis." Consult an ENT SURGEON immediately and probably, she will require injectable antibiotics. And remember one thing - never get ear piercing done by quacks or gold Smiths. They don't take sterile precautions.

There seems to be an infection after ear piercing. Consult an ENT doctor for removal of ear pin and antibiotic.
