Problem with my pierced ears

I have had my ears pierced for as long as I can remember. I used to wear earrings 24/7 in all 5 holes and decided a while back to remove 4 of them. Now when I try to wear earrings in those holes, they get red, irritated and pussy. I know the cosmetic jewelry may be a cause..... any other suggestions other than letting them close?

  • Sounds like they are just irritated from not wearing earrings on a regular basis. Apply some alcohol and some neosporin .

  • wear gold earrings or surgical steel earrings. Claire's and Icing seel these nifty plastic covers for earrings studs, so that your ear doesn't make contact with the earring, you could use them.

  • I had mine pierced for years and could NEVER wear earrings without them getting irritated. I finally gave up last year and gave all of my fine jewelry pierced earrings to my DD.
