Three months ago I wrestled on the floor with my two boys, ages 11 and 12, on my in-laws’ living room floor. We had great fun and lots of laughs. Only problem was I forgot to remove my hoop earrings. I suddenly felt one of them rip a bit and jumped up to take them off.
I did the same thing afterward that I’ve done when one of my earring holes has been stressed at other times in my life – wore earrings less, wore my tiny studs, etc., expecting it to heal. Only problem is that it’s not healed. I still have soreness in one earring hole right now with no earrings in, and when I’ve worn even light hoops or the like, I don’t last long at all and then I’m pulling them out. I usually wear some kind of hoop or dangle earring daily.
I honestly wasn’t sure where medicine came in with this kind of thing, since wearing earrings is aesthetic and earring holes are initially done by a jewelry store, in most cases. I do have an appointment tomorrow in primary care to look at it. Feels a little silly, but not sure how to get this to heal.
