What can I do about the large hole in the back of my ear piercing?
Doctor Answers 4
Ear piercing - hole at the back so large that the earring fell out
- The hole is large because the backing was so tight that it made the piercing hole larger.
- The first thing to do is to stop wearing any earrings and let it heal.
- if it heals, it can be repierced later - be sure the earrings are on too tightly.
- If it will not heal,it will need minor surgery to close the hole and re-pierce the ears.
