So the other day I lost my earrings @ football lifting so I left them out till I got home and asked if someone could get me a new pair. I was rejected this offer and told they would not close. Well the next day I found my pair of spares (large diamond studs which are okay looking) and proceeded to try to put them in and found that my ears had slightly closed (the left more so) so I pushed them through gently and felt some skin break and the earrings slip in.
My problem now is that the left is no longer healed. I can tell because it has slight irritation (pain but not anything major, just irritating) when I twist my earring (I tend to do this a lot ever since I got them pierced). The thing that bothers me the most is that it seems to have small amounts of what I'd expect to be white blood cells (or as you could call it puss (I hate that word)) coming out of the ear hole.
Could someone advise me on what to do for this. Is it infected or something alike?
Currently the only thing I have been doing is taking them out after showers/ when I sleep and cleaning the earrings with alcohol and then slipping them back in and applying alcohol onto the so I can get it into the hole.
Thank you Nic. I don't know it said on the thing they gave me to take them out and clean them after showering but I'd expect you would know more sounding like you have a few piercings yourself. Regardless I can't avoid taking them out because I have lifting till the end of February.. But thank you for your concern.
