Best Answer

If it is near the back of your earring, you might be having an allergic reaction to the material that your eraring is made of. I have this happen to me as well. I can only wear nickel free earrings. Just take your earring out for a few days and the bump should go away.

It is better to see a doctor to know what is that bump, if it is painful then probably it is an infection which must be diagnosed and cured as soon as possible. If the sweeling or the bump is not at all painful but it grows fast or becomes bigger, it might be possible that it is a cyst and it needs to be removed as soon as possible.
