Can ear piercing infection affect whole ear?

I’ve had an annoying earache for a while now in my left ear, along with a pressurised feeling (though this actually went away when I was on a flight yesterday) and I don’t really know what could have caused it. I haven’t had a cold recently or gone swimming. However, my piercing on this ear hasn’t healed properly... show more I’ve had an annoying earache for a while now in my left ear, along with a pressurised feeling (though this actually went away when I was on a flight yesterday) and I don’t really know what could have caused it. I haven’t had a cold recently or gone swimming. However, my piercing on this ear hasn’t healed properly and is still tender and red. Are these two things linked?
