Your newly pierced ears will heal faster and will be less prone to infection if they are not touched. Rotating will cause irritation or injury of the new piercings. A piercing is essentially a puncture wound that heals around a piece of jewelry. The skin inside the tunnel (fistula) must undergo various phases of healing and during this healing phase, the skin is extremely delicate and prone to injury. For this reason, the best approach to healing is a gentle daily cleaning with soap and water along with a sterile saline mist and/or saline soaks. All the materials we pierce with are non-porous, free of grooves (no screwbacks) with a mirror like finish so there is no need to worry about skin “sticking” to the earrings.
