oooo sorry it might just be puss in it you might need to see the Dr if it dose not go, is it red ? sore? or can you see any puss in it?
Its unlikely to be seriously infected, the ear lobe is a funny part of thebody and will swell if damaged. Dab some iodine or rub an antiseptic cream on it.

Boil some water... put some sea salt in a cup... pour boiling water into the cup and stir...

use cotton wool to dab the area with the salted water - do this morning and night until healed.

Job done :)

cheers im been so carful not to take any oral meds as i have surgery week on friday
If you have surgery that soon then, unless it has cleared up by tomorrow, I would take it to the docs. Would be terrible to have the op cancelled which they could do if you have an infection!
