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

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.
