Haven't worn earrings in a while. sore holes? HELP please?
Ok so I've had my ears pierced for about 23 years. I got them done when i was a baby

But for the past 2 years I havent worn any earrings. Occasionally I would put earrings in and then take them out after a few minutes just to make sure the holes didnt close up. Now I want to wear earrings again so I bougth some studs. I'm been cleaning them with alcohol and using bacitracin ointment when I put them in like im supposed to. I take them off to shower. but I've noticed that I can only wear the studs because if i try to wear something a little bit bigger,. like a small hoop or something a little dangly. the holes feel sore and uncomfortable. Do I just have to get used to wearing earrings again? How long do I have to only wear studs before Im able to wear bigger heavier ones?
                     




Dr Dan
They might begin to heal up and the holes close up after such a long time, but in a steady pace. I suggest that you wear studs until the soreness and pain goes away - then at least you'll feel comfortable with them in knowing there is no health concerns. You should wear steel ones as they are the best for you at the moment and I recommend cleaning both your studs and ears with sea salt to fight swelling and clean it from bacteria and infection. Either that or you can continue to wash them with alcohol. You may want to see a doctor in the meantime so they can give you a visual examination and assessment. You DO need to get used to wearing earrings again - your ears aren't used to the weight.
