Anonymous said: I have average lobe piercings.i only can wear real gold or silver jewelry because I have a reaction to plastic earrings. I would like to get more ear piercings such as the tragus but being a dancer I will have to wear clear retainers during performances and while it's healing but the retainers are plastic. Should I keep the metal jewelry in till the last moment before my performance and switch it out for the retainers;only keeping the plastic in for the performance or is it bad to keep switching
Its bad to keep switching, it allows for bacteria to transfer into the piercing (as piercings are considered open wounds while healing) and also causes trauma to the fragile tissue that is trying to heal which can result in excessive scarring and swelling in addition.
Also, plastic and acrylic retainers are not ideal to wear and especially in piercings that are in the healing process.
We sell glass retainers for piercings in our studio as glass has a smooth non-porus surface and can be sterilized.
My advice is to NOT get more peircings until you have a break from dance that allows the piercings to heal long enough to switch to some retainers.
Have a consultation with a reputable piercer first and go from there.
