DD is 9.5 months old. I had her ears pierced almost 4 months ago and we keep having issues with her earrings, particularly the right one. It has gotten infected twice and this morning there was dried up blood all around it. I took both earrings out to have a look and they still don't look healed. I did everything I was supposed to do and I followed all instructions for how to care for them. I don't know what happened.
I took them both out, cleaned them out with alcohol and treated both earlobes with antibiotic ointment. I decided to leave the earrings out to see if that helps them heal. I know they will probablly close up though. :-( At this point I think I will wait until she's older (5 or 6) to get them repierced. I'm disappointed but it's frustrating to keep going through this 4 months later.
