1)Keep the ear-piercing clean.
After washing hand with soap and water clean the ear lobules with cotton wool dipped in antiseptic solution ,twice a day.
2)Rotate the ear-ring in its hole slowly to avoid build up of debris.
3)Keep the region dry
4)Look out for signs of infection.Infection and allergic reactions make the chance of hypertrophic scar, and keloid formation more likely.
5)Don’t try to change the ear-ring/stud before 6 weeks after Ear piercing.
6)Continue wearing ear-ring continuously for 6 months as otherwise tract will not form and the piercing may close.

Tinnitus with heavyness and dizziness points towards meniere's disease. You need to be put on medication for months for this particular condition and you need to undergo investigation like pure tone audiometry, as you might have some hearing disability with repeated attacks of dizziness. See a ent specialist for proper checkup.
