Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


Whenever I wear earrings daily, my earlobes start bleeding, and despite using coconut oil for healing, the problem persists. Since I'm a fashion model, it's crucial that my earrings match my outfits. Is there any solution or remedy available to address this issue?


Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


Heavy weight earrings can cause earlobe tears, but given your profession, avoiding them completely may not be feasible. Consider applying 2% lignocaine jelly before wearing earrings to minimize discomfort. Also, refrain from wearing earrings once you're at home to allow your earlobes to rest and heal.
