    How do I reopen a pierced ear hole?

    I haven't worn earrings in months and now I can't get an earring through the holes as they have closed up. I used to be able to just poke the earrings through when this happened but no luck. Any ideas about how I can do this at home?

    what I've done is ice my ear completely up and just gritted my teeth and pushed the sucker through. it hurts like heck and there is blood-but its the only thing I've done. now of course I am violently allergic to ALL earrings so its a moot point. gee....think there may be a correlation?! have no clue if this is safe or not, but its what I used to do!

    To be honest, I wouldn't try it. I poked an earring through a hole that had closed a bit too much and now it's all messed up. I wish I had gotten it re-pierced at a piercing salon with a needle.
    Now when I put an earring in that ear I have to get it at the right angle to find the part of the hole that I poked through myself, there's another hole in that earlobe that is a dead end which was the original hole, I think (not sure if that makes sense). I'm probably lucky that it didn't get infected.

    I have always just pushed an earring through. Maybe go to someone who does piercings and see what they have to say. Does you hairdresser does this, I know mine does?

    if you go to a person that does them, they will do it again pretty cheap. I woudl do it myself(and I have) have a hot shower though. the warm soaking softens up the tissue and expands the holes. if you are worried about the pinching/pain whatever you want to call it, just go get someone to do it for you. Oh, if you do it yourself, you could get baby studs because they are thin

    UGH!!!! Rylina ripped both my earings out but I always found them. This time I did not. I plan on getting them re-pierced when she better behaved!
