    Earlobe piercing--how long does it ACTUALLY take to heal?

    I had my earlobe pierced by the gun 10 weeks ago. I've read from everywhere, they all said it takes around 6-8 weeks to heal, or something like that. It's been 10 weeks, when I take out my stud today, there's still little bits of blood seeping out. If I leave the stud out a crust will form. It doesn't hurt and isn't swelled up, which means it shouldn't be infected (if it was it'll hurt). Is this normal? I thought by "healing" it meant actually healing.

    If it isn't swollen or painful, I don't think it's infected. Healing time for piercings always varies...though the ear lobe should heal rather quick...in any case, if your worried, just keep the stud in and wash it with anti-bacterial soap everytime you take a shower. Time will take care of the rest.

    All of my earrings healed within about a week...Have you been cleaning it thoroughly(rubbing alcohol works the best) a couple of times a day?

    My Personal Experience

    I got my ears pierced (two more holes in each lobe) around Halloween '07 and counted 8 weeks after that to mess around with them. Unfortunately for me, I didn't seem to be fully healed because there was some blood coming out, so I left them in for another week and tried wearing non-post earrings (usually a bad idea but I couldn't resist). It was uncomfortable on the ear lobe that was thicker so i took it out again for another week. The next week that I wore the earrings, everything was fine. I'd say the upper ear lobe takes longer to heal because I still get puss around the earring when I take it out. You just have to get a feel for your own body and figure out when the time is right...

    No, do NOT use rubbing alcohol or anything like that, if you're going to put any treatments on it, it should be something that is made specifically for piercings, or use sea salt mixed with warm water, I use a cup of water and teaspoon of sea salt. Alcohol, peroxide, etc. all destroy the skin cells and only delay the healing process.
