So my DD (age 8) got her ears pierced back in early August. She had her starter earrings in until about a week ago when she asked if she could change them out. My MIL had sent several pairs from Claires..so my DD picked out a pair to put in. Well, today when she was cleaning them, she told me that they had been sore for a few days, but today started hurting really bad. Well...of course they are now infected. So my question is, do you think it's an allergy to the cheap metal from the Claires earrings? She had NO problems with the starter set from Claires (which were 14Kt gold). We took out her earrings and I told her we have to leave them out until the infection clears up...I've had my ears pierced over half my life, so it's no issue going months without wearing earrings..since hers have only been pierced a few months, will it be okay to leave earrings out for a few days until it clears up? Also, should we just continue using the solution from Claires or buy something different?
