Nose piercing help

Hey guys, 
So my nose piercing has been slightly infected for the past few weeks and I've been routinely taking care of it with my sea salt solution and some cotton swabs, however it still looks like it hasn't been healing.
This is my second nose piercing (I used to have it on the other side and it actually closed) but I never take this one out and I haven't been able to get to the doctor or my piercer. Last time he called he just said to do what I am doing. Have any of you experienced this? And if you've gone to the doctor what did they tell you to do? Not sure if I can take antibiotics because of my birth control since it would counteract it, and I heard antibiotic cream clogs piercing. Ideas?
