  • put pressure on the ears, as you would to your own if the same issue happened to you! keep on with the antisepptic and neosporin. is she better? take the earrings out for now so the ear can heal!

  • Take out the ear rings and leave them out. You can't do much more than antiseptic and neosporin.

  • if its really bad take her to the dr, other then that i think you're doing the right thing. let it heal on its own. if the earing is still in i would make sure to turn it atleast once a day if not more to make sure a scab doesnt form around it.

    i see nothing wrong with peircing her ears so dont feel bad. i had my own ears done at a couple weeks. i believe it is a parents choice. obviously if it was harmful they wouldnt allow it. good luck

  • This is exactly why i hate piercings on small children. Just stupidly dangerous....and they look tacky imo.

    I would take the earrings out and let the air at it and also to avoid further stretching/ripping.
    Keep wiping with the antisceptic and hopefully she'll be alrighty.

  • Take the earrings out and don't have her wear them until she can care for them herself and you can be sure she won't somehow pull them out and SWALLOW them.

  • first there is nothing wrong with getting a baby's ears pierced. for God's sake it's not like you're getting a f*cking tattoo on her or something.

    anyway that happened to my daughter just a couple of days ago and i took it out and cleaned it the way you did. i still have left the earrings out just to make sure it doesn't get infected or anything and will prob put them back in tomorrow or the next day. good luck!

  • Ignore the haters!!!! Its nobodys business if you got her ears pierced! Those type of people need to mind their business, and stick with being over protective freaks that are harming their own children by limiting everything they do! Then their kids will grow up and go out of control the first taste of freedom they get. Keep the earrings out untill the ear is healed, but dont wait too long, the ears can close up.
