What should I clean my stretched ears with?
What oil should I use on my stretched lobes? Any natural oil is good for your ears, but we recommend you try using jojoba oil (try our jojoba oil ), vitamin E oil, coconut oil, olive oil, emu oil, and bio oil. Any of these will do a great job and soften your earlobes to help them retain the necessary moisture.
How often should I clean my stretched ears?
Soak your earlobes at least twice a day in warm, clean water with about 1/4 tsp of salt for every 1 cup of water. Massage your earlobes at least once a day with coconut oil, jojoba oil, or another safe oil to keep it moisturized and promote healing.
Can you clean stretched ears with rubbing alcohol?
Do not use rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide. (Both slow the healing of pierced area by drying and killing new healthy cells.) Do not use bacitracin or other ointments. (Ointments attempt to heal the skin & may slow oxygen transport to the tissue).
Why do my stretched ears get crusty?
If you just had your body pierced and you start to notice a crusty material around the piercing site, don’t worry. Crusting after body piercing is perfectly normal—this is just the result of your body trying to heal itself. 1 deceased blood cells and plasma make their way to the surface and then dry when exposed to air.
