What should I do if my belly piercing becomes infected?

Dealing with an infected belly piercing

If your belly button piercing should become infected, do not remove the ring. The piercing must be free of germs and bacteria before removing the belly ring or the harmful germs could get trapped and worsen the infection. If your piercing begins to produce a thick or discolored liquid see your doctor to get proper treatment for the infection.

i think that the person who pierced my belly ring might have put too much skin in it to where it barely moves up and down. so i can see that its getting infected but the top ball is sitting in my skin and it seems that my top whole is opening a lot, what should i do?!
