No its not normal. This happened to me and i went back to the place i got it done and they told me it was beginning to get infected. So all you have to do is go and get some antibiotic ointment. you'll be fine in about a week just put that on 2 times a day.

NO. Do not use ANY ointment. Just go to your Piercer or family doctor and see what they have to say about it.

What if your new Monroe piercing is exactly a week old and Seems fine except the red raised bump that goes around the whole circumference of the exit hole is it infected?

It sounds like you may be reacting to the cleaning product you are using, stop using the product and just rinse the piercing under running water while moving the jewellery back and forth. The water will draw any irritants out of the piercing, allow the piercing to dry normally and don't apply anything else to the piercing for a couple of days while doing the fore mentioned rinsing. The red lump should ease and disappear in 24 to 48 hours, if so then you have found your problem.

Is it dangerous to have a platelet count of 103000?

No. The "lower limit of normal" is 150,000 so at 103k you have a "low platelet count" which should be followed up by your doctor, but it's not acutely concerning. It may actually be normal for some individuals, as the normal range of 150-400k is statistically determined. A low platelet count does not become clinically significant until it gets down to around 50,000.
