Did you just get your ears pierced or did you have them stretched from an existing piercing? Do the barbells not fit anymore? I'd go back to your piercer for some jewelry that fits comfortably into your lobes, and treat them like new piercings. Leave them alone until the bleeding stops, and then do sea salt soaks for 5-10 minutes per day in a solution of no more than 1/4 teaspoon sea salt per one cup hot water. If they're new piercings you'll want to leave at least six months before stretching. If they were stretched from a previous piercing, just wait until they're completely healed and you can put in the next size without pain or resistance, which will probably be a few months.
I'm Lindsay.
I have 1/2" lobes and 11 piercings: left helix x2, both conches, both nostrils, septum, navel, and VCH.
My lobes are small but I know a lot about stretching and how to do it safely, so message me if you have any questions!
