The Swimmer’s Ear

By Abel Alexander

There is nothing wrong with ear piercing if it is done right. I personally have four piercings and I want to get one more. You just have to care for it well especially when you just had it pierced. If you neglect it, something worse can happen beyond the holes closing. That would be the worst thing, for a simple procedure like ear piercing to lead to something terrible as having ear infections.

First step is to find the right person that will pierce your ear. The needles or piercing gun that they will use must be sterilized. You are going to pierce your skin, that is a serious matter. Don’t let anything dirty through your skin.

It is, of course, better to prevent it. After swimming, dry your ears by shaking excess water out. It is better if your use ear plugs when swimming, of course, especially if you are doing some heavy swimming.

It is even a worse idea to put anything sharp even if it is soft. The inside of the ear is really sensitive and the slightest nudge can hurt it. The ear will really take care of itself, so don’t mess with it.

Piercing it is not that bad if you know how to take care of it. One of the most basic things you need to do is leave the ear in when you just had it pierced. If you take it out too soon, it will close up. Your effort to have earrings will be in vain.

It would also be better if you don’t go swimming until your piercing completely heals because there really are a lot of bacteria in the pool that may not really affect us in regular situations but might be bad for open wound. Yes, a fresh piercing is an open wound.
