changing my daughters earrings

My daughter is currently 6 and I got her ears pierced when she was 5, so she's had the studs in her ears for just over a year.  I've been having a hard time getting the backing off the studs.  They just won't come off.  I tried, my husband has tried, even my aunt tried.  My aunt said she talked to a co-worker who has a young daughter and she suggested they might be screw-on.  I've tried unscrewing one of them, but it won't come off, I just keep turning the backing.  Any ideas?

If all else fails take her to the place that pierced them.  They should be able to show you how.

Are they like this?

Maybe a little baby oil on the post? Is there room between her ear and the back? You might need to snip it off with wire cutters of some sort, that would be my last resort though. Good luck.

I wish they did look like that.  Here is a picture.

I had those types of backs when I first got my ears pierced years ago. They are VERY hard to get off. I remember just pulling them off I believe but I'm not sure.

Edit**Try tweezers.

Hmm weird. I don't have any experience with that type of earring back. Where did you buy them from?

The piercing earings are hard to get out. Pull the front while pulling the back. Dont ever put them back in, lol! I hated them when I got mine done.
