What Is A Good Way To Get An Earing Through A Hole That Is Halfway Closed Up
Push it through: Carefully; the hole has probably not healed completely closed, and "finding" the tract is usually possible without re-piercing. Of course, there is always re-piercing, but keep the new hole clean or it too will become inflamed/infected and heal shut. ...Read more
I've had my ears done for a while & I put in bad earrings and now there's a ball in the middle of the hole, it hurts & I can't get my earrings through?
Piercing blocked: If it hurts then you should probably leave it alone for a while and allow it to heal. When you no longer feel the ball in the middle of the hole you can have your ears redone if you choose. To avoid this problem recurring in the future, wear only earrings with posts or wires and backs made of surgical steel. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Open wound: After a wound has been open for more than 8 hours, we (surgeons) do worry about getting a secondary infection by closing it tightly.

About every 2 months i get this bad pain in my right gland and a little below the ear lasts 5 days can't eat or anything if i eat i would like a suggestion before its time to go through this again
Hello, : Hello, i wonder if what you are referring to is inflammation of your subauricular lymph node. The lymphatic channels drain tissues of debris, old white blood cells and bacteria. When handling an area of infection, the nodes can become enlarged and tender. If it is a lymph node, it would be important to determine why is it becoming inflammed. It could be a dental issue or an ear/nose/ throat issue. In that area, that can also be embryonic residual matter that could be an issue. I suggest that you get it checked out. ...Read more
No: I've seen young children with pierced ears whose earlobes have been torn during rough play with siblings.
