First off, if its infected, be sure to go to the doctor. They'll probably prescribe an antibiotic, which will prevent complications from the infection and will help clear the infection up a lot quicker. it really depends on the severity of the infection and how well you care for the piercing. The infection should clear up within 4 weeks but the piercing will take longer to heal because of the trauma caused by the infection.

Well the piercing needs to heal, this can take up to a year for a piercing to become seasoned (this is when you can remove the jewellery for a few hours and not have an issue putting it back in).
