You shouldn't have gauged your ears yourself. I own and work at a tattoo/pierce shop so I understand this. Put some rubbing alcohol (Hydrogen Peroxide) on the infected area with a quetip. Do that every night and make sure you keep it clean.
The lumps in your ear could be caused by an infection, such as mastoiditis or an allergic reaction, such as dermatitis. Go and visit a medical doctor will most likely prescribe antibiotics especially if the lumps are accompanied by pain, fever, hearing loss and redness.
