I have a blowout in my right ear that is kinda gnarly, so I was going to downsize in hopes that it would shrink up a little bit. Yesterday, I took out the plug with the intention of leaving it out for a few days and putting a smaller one in. It was a little pink and sore, but I assumed it was the cold air and didn't think anything of it.

Four hours later, I checked on it and it was very sore and a redder color than it had been previously. Putting the plug back in worked with the help of some hot water. After an hour or two, it went back to the way it was before the whole incident occurred.

I'm confused as hell.

Just be careful, my ear started out like that and seemed ok again but then it split a few days later! Try not to mess with it too much, just let it settle down.

How much would it cost for me to get the blowout scalpelled off?

Don't listen to Felonious. Never listen to him.
Just because he cut his own ear doesn't mean everyone should.
I'd see a professional about getting the blow out cut off if you really deemed it necessary.

For now I would just keep in whatever jewelry feels comfortable until then. (Nothing that's putting any pressure on your ears) And be nice to it !
