Actually, it can happen within a matter of a day or two. The backing of the earring can disappear in a matter of hours. The piercings sound relatively new, so she shouldn't really be taking them out in the first place. Leave them in and see a doctor. If they need to be removed, the doctor will do them.
Oh, it does. Different parts of the body heal at different paces, so a cut on your arm or leg can take days, but one on your ear would be a lot faster. A tongue piercing can heal in under an hour. Do you not remember the girl whose earrings healed over while she slept? It's happened to me too. I'm referencing from personal experience, what I've heard at the doctors, and the piercer I went to.
i've heard that when you have an ear infection, you get the earrings you got your ears pierced with (or just any studs that dont make the infection worse, so like no cheap earrings) and put neosporin on them and put them in your ears and leave them in when you sleep, shower, and everything until your infection goes away! but keep reapplying neosporin. my ears always get badly infected and this is what i do. works everytime as long as you leave the earrings in!! and keep neosporin on
redbluegreen is right, however it sounds like op put the earrings in knowing she had an infection and this just irritated it to that point. regardless, redbluegreen is correct that it can only take a day or two for the infection to engulf the earring, it all depends on thr type of infection and what caused it. my question is why op is on the computer and not at the hospital having it removed before it becomes completely lodged in there and requires actual surgery as opposed to a small incision....
Um.....A few things: 1) Why are you wearing earrings if you have that bad of an infection? 2) Why haven't you seen a doctor? You obviously haven't because they would have told you not to wear earrings in the first place 3) What kind of dumbass do you have to be to not notice a piece of metal being meshed into the back of your earlobe??? You are very unintelligent.
Why wearing earrings when you have an ear infection ? D:
Go to the doctor now.
