Why Do My Ears Hurt When I Wear Earrings?
I went years without wearing earrings, and every once in a while I would put them in and they would irritate my ears so bad that I would take them right out and never wear them again. I wanted to wear cute hoops and diamond studs, but they irritated my ears so bad I couldn’t. Why do my ears hurt when I wear earrings? I was beginning to think I would never be able to wear earrings again. But I found a solution!
I recently got a beautiful pair of Swarovski crystal earrings and even though they are great quality earrings, they still irritated my ears. I had two options, they could sit and sparkle in my jewelry box or I find a way to wear earrings again in comfort. So I started looking for solutions, and I found one that works!
How To Wear Earrings Again
Tip 1. Clean your ears daily with alcohol to help heal and prevent infection.
Tip 2. Dip the tip of your earring (the part that goes in the piercing) in some coconut oil. Coconut oil helps heal your sore ears because it contains natural anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. It also provides a soothing barrier.
Tip 3. Give your ears a day or two break. After wearing earrings for a day, take them out and give your ears a day or two to heal.
Tip 4. Avoid cheap earrings. If you can buy sterling silver or gold plated, hypoallergenic earrings, do it! Avoid cheap metal earrings because they will just sit in your jewelry box since you can’t wear them anyway! Sometimes, especially with cheaper earrings, my ears would get red, hot and itchy. Not exactly the look I’m going for.
Wearing earrings again is possible! But, if your ears are infected, be sure to speak to your doctor to get some medical advice.
I hope this post helps you to be able to enjoy all of your cute hoops and diamonds again!
