Why does my newly pierced (3 months)ear cartilage keep getting infected despite how thorough I keep it cleaned?

This hole just wont heal. I clean it with ear antiseptic throughout the day. Put Neosporin on it, take my ear ring out at night to sleep, but it still keeps filling up with puss daily.

Keep your earing in.! IF IT ISNT HEALED (obviously not) keep it in no matter what. BIG THING. Clean it twice a day with the stuff you have. No neosporin.! Dont touch it or play with it.! Do this for a couple of weeks if its not working. Call the piercing place or stop in. Mine healed fast. Hope i help.

You could have an allergy or sensitivity to the metal or material that the earrings or made of, even if gold or silver. A dermatologist could be helpful to evaluate this possibility.
