What happens if you change piercing jewelry too early?
Changing the jewellery too early can lead to infections, inflammation and scarring of the piercing, so you should be patient. If you have a piercing that has been in place for a long time, it is best to wait until the skin has healed before changing it. If you are unsure whether your piercing needs to be changed, ask your piercer for advice.
How do I know my piercing is healed?
You’ll know your ear is healed once any discharge, swelling, redness, flaking, or soreness stops. With time and a little bit of rest, your piercing should feel better.
Can I change earrings after 1 week?
Professionally, it is recommended that you change your earrings after at least six weeks after getting your piercing. It is safe to remove the old earrings and replace them with new ones if the wound created by the piercing will have healed within this period.
However, if you are not sure, you may want to wait until your wound has fully healed. The healing time depends on the type of piercing and the size of the earring. If you have a piercing that is larger than a quarter, then it may take longer.
Should you twist new ear piercings?
Don’t touch the jewelry unless you’re cleaning it. Keep clothing away from the piercing. It is possible to make your skin more likely to get infections by rubbing it. Wash your hands with soap and water before and after touching your piercing. You can also use an antibacterial hand sanitizer to help prevent infection.
Can a piercing heal in 2 weeks?
The rate at which a piercing heals varies from person to person and can also depend on what type of piercing you get, but typically, a new earlobe piercing will heal in 6-12 weeks. It can take up to a year or more for a piercing further up the ear to heal.
The healing time for a pierced ear depends on a number of factors, including the size of the piercing, the amount of time it has been exposed to the environment, and how well the healing process is controlled by the body. For example, some people can heal their pierced ears in as little as a week, while others may take months or even years to recover fully.
Some people may even need to wear earplugs for the rest of their lives to prevent further damage to their ears.
