It's called stretching not gauging
It's not safe to take a razor to your ear, that's fucking dumb.
Google the association for professional piercers, use their webpage to locate a reputable shop in your area that the endorse and go there. Talk to the piercer there and they will set you straight on what to do.
Remember its called stretching, "gauge" refers to the size, it is a unit of measurement derived from the same unit of measurement used for electrical wire.

i had my ear pierced last year and something happened i guess and i got a huge cyst it was under the piercing about two months after i got it done...i popped it squeezed all of the pus and blood out and what not so i have been waiting for a year now and there is still a small bump ive used a razor and cut into the bump to see if its like pus or some shit but nothing comes out the bump is always the same size it doesnt hurt or anything...would it be safe to get my ear pierced so i can start gauging or no?
what you're feeling is actually the scar tissue from the cyst. ear piercings are notorious for doing this, as i have 6 in my ears from when i removed the jewelry from the piercing. it is totally safe to pierce again, one thing a good piercer will take into consideration before piercing your ear again is the location of that scar tissue and attempt to pierce around it. depending on the size of your lobe this might be possible. another thing you could do is go ahead and do a dermal punch and take the knot completely out of your ear..
although i have not pierced in a shop (or out of my house for that matter) i have completed an apprenticeship under 2 different artists and any piercer worth their salt should give you the same answer. hope it helps.

That thing on your ear was a keloid.

I'm pretty white, and I've had two keloids.

All it is, is like a nerve thing I had one exactly like that after I pierce my ear once and I repierced it and I was fine
did you stretch your ear? or have you since then.
