What Is A Good Way To Get An Earing Through A Hole That Is Halfway Closed Up

No: I've seen young children with pierced ears whose earlobes have been torn during rough play with siblings. Metal allergies can be an issue, and if improperly fastened, the child may pull off and eat. I counsel my parents to let their children decide if they want pierced ears when the child is old enough to care for it themselves. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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?

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

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
