Is my piercing infected?

I got my ears pierced a week and a half ago. I have long hair and a few times in my sleep I've forgotten I've had my ears pierced only to brush the hair sleepily away from my face which in turn caught and pulled my earrings. Now on my left ear the pain and irritation disappeared and I have no pain whatsoever but my right ear is itchy and feels hot to me but not to anyone else. There's no swelling, only redness if I keep touching it and no pus. It was hurting to turn my earring too but that has stopped. 

So does it sound like infection to you or just irritation? Thank you.
