Ear piercings have a tendency to get infected and close up, especially new piercings. Follow these steps to prevent infections or any chance of having your piercing close up.
Things you will need:
First, after getting your piercing done, be sure to follow the directions given by the person who pierced your ears. Most likely you'll be told to apply rubbing alcohol and twist the backs of your earrings. Follow those steps for the first few months.
If you're having trouble changing your earrings, apply Neosporin to the back and front of your ears, as well as the earring itself. If it does not slide in easily, do not force it.
If you are able to put studs in your ears, do so. Wear them day and night, and continue cleaning them with the rubbing alcohol.
When purchasing earrings, look for those that are hypoallergenic. You may be allergic to cheap earrings made of artificial silver or nickel. You can even purchase cheap ones at Claire's.
Finally, if your ears are still bothering you, or you have a bump or bruising of some kind, visit the place where you originally got your ears pierced for medical advice.
