Taking Care of Your Ears
When you first get your ears pierced, you should leave the earrings in until your ears are completely healed. This usually takes about 4 to 6 weeks. If you don't, your holes could close up and you'll have to go through everything all over again!
You don't want germs with your newly pierced ears, so it's very important to keep your ears clean. For several days after the piercing, you or a parent will need to clean your ears and put ear cleaning solution, rubbing alcohol, or antibiotic ointment on them.
Whoever is doing the cleaning should follow these steps twice a day:
Wash hands thoroughly.
Use a cotton ball or swab to apply rubbing alcohol or antibiotic ointment to the earlobe or lobes.
Gently rotate the earring in the ear.
After your ears have healed, it's a good idea to remove your earrings every night before you go to sleep. When you remove your first earrings, clean them — and any other earrings you'll be wearing — in rubbing alcohol. And if an earring ever gets stuck in your ear, seek help from a grown-up.
If Your Ears Get Infected
If you think one of your pierced ears may be infected, tell your mom or dad. An infected earlobe may be swollen, red, warm, and painful, and it may ooze a thick, yellow-white fluid called pus.
It's fairly common for pierced ears to get infected, but don't wait for it to get better by itself because the infection may spread and make you sick.
Here are signs you need to tell your mom or dad about:
Your earring gets stuck in your ear.
The swelling or redness spreads beyond the hole.
You get a fever.
Your mom or dad will probably call the doctor for advice on how to treat the infection. The doctor will probably suggest a routine of cleaning the ear and putting antibacterial ointment on it.
You'll need to have a parent check in with the doctor again if the infection doesn't start going away after 2 days. But if you take care of the infection, it probably will go away completely in 1 to 2 weeks. Then you can start enjoying your pierced ears again!
