Q:when drunk i had a friend of mine stretch my earlobe. bad idea. went up a size too much and my earlobe started secreting pus and junk so i took the barbell out... now it's just about grown shut :( sigh. but i am still glad i was wise enough to take it out asap!
Actually, if it was oozing “pus and junk” you should’ve left the barbell in until you went to a doctor and gotten anti-biotics. Taking out the barbell could’ve trapped the infection and made your scenario much much worse.
