Removing the piercing studs from the ears too early, however, can increase the risk of infection and irritation. If left out too long, the hole may heal shut.
Likewise, can I take my earrings out after 1 week to clean?
Don’t take your earrings out too early! They will close rather rapidly. Leave earrings in for 6-8 weeks, giving your ears time to heal.
Likewise, people ask, can I take my new piercing out for a few hours?
“If you have a brand new piercing, your hole can close in a few hours,” Studs co-founder and CMO, Lisa Bubbers, told TODAY Style. … You also should avoid going any longer than 24 hours without wearing earrings for the first six months of a new piercing to prevent the hole from closing.
How do I know my piercing is healed?
It looks good – most piercings look pretty good from the outset. A small amount of redness is not uncommon, but this should subside within a couple of weeks. You may notice some dry matter at the entry or exit of your piercing. This is called “exudate” and is a byproduct of the healing process.
Answer: As you will be changing the piercing too much early, it can somehow open your piercing to various infections and somehow it can also become irritated for your piercing too. … You should wait for at least 8 weeks to have your piercing fully healed. It might infect your ears if you will change it after 1 day.
Twisting the piercing breaks the newly forming flesh! … Don’t touch your healing piercings unless you have CLEAN disinfected hands! Twisting your piercing can also cause it to become irritated, inflamed, and could cause the piercing to migrate or heal crooked!
You should only switch into new earrings AFTER the healing period. If you take your earrings out for any length of time during the healing period, the holes may close or you may find it difficult to re-insert earrings into a piercing hole that has not fully healed.

Give it a Rest
First things first – do not attempt to clean your piercing right away when you get home. In fact, don’t touch your piercing or the area around it for the first 24 hours after you’ve had your piercing done. The area will still likely be painful, and you need to let the piercing settle down a bit.
Yes. But a piercing is a special kind of wound. Nobody wants an infection or a rejection, of course… But there is certainly a balance to be struck. Work with your body to keep your piercing clean (but not too clean) and you’ll have a happy, healed piercing in no time!
These can further irritate the skin and slow the healing process. Don’t remove the piercing. This can cause the hole to close up and trap the infection.
“You can potentially damage your jewelry by constantly wearing it, but there are no major health risks to wearing jewelry every day, which includes sleeping and showering,” she says (unless you’re wearing costume jewelry, but we’ll get to that later).
If you don’t like it and don’t want it, yes. Piercings close up and heal very fast if you take them out shortly after being done. So if you don’t like it and want it to heal over, taking it out is fine.
