Ear Piercings and the infection to follow

So what ever happened to just an ordinary ear lobe piercing? In today’s society research has shown that more than 86% of people between the ages of 16-24 have more than one piercing in their ears. It has become a growing trend to have all kinds of strange ear piercings and they include; Scaffold, Rim, Snug, Conch, Anit-Tragus, Lobe, Tragus, Rook, Diath, and the Inner Pinner. Now I don’t know about you, but I for one have never even heard of the majority of these!

So as you know, any kind of piercing has the potential to cause infection. However it is the likes of these piercings (mentioned above) that are the most common cause as these tricky positions make it extremely hard for people to keeping their piercings dry and clean.     

I myself have my lobe pierced 3 times now as each time I would neglect the piercing and it would get so sore from infection that I just couldn’t keep the jewellery in anymore! However third time lucky and I have finally learnt my lesson and kept this on clean and allowed the proper amount of time before changing the ear jewellery. That is a great piece of advice, follow the piercers instructions!

I likewise have the rim of my ear pierced and that one hurt a lot! A lot of people ask me, “Was it worth it?” and when I look back at how many times my ears have been infected and the pain it caused, I would still always say “yes!” I may not have looked after my piercings properly, but for those who do, the results are great!
