Kayla got her ears done at 2.5 months old. I never had a problem. Cleaned them all the time. Changing them was fine too. At christmas I even let her wear my pearl earring that I've had for ages. I don't know how high of quality they are. Never had an issue! For her Birthday I bought her a set of three sterling silver earring from Kmart. The posts were a little short but she wore them fine for about a month but some time this summer (almost a year of having them done) they got red and crusty so I took them out. I think they were on too tight. Once they healed I put the peircing earrings back in and they got red and gunky. Took them out to heal. I used cleaning sollution and triple A ointment. I did this about three times and every time they would get like that. I'm lost as too why. I've read a ton online and it all says to different things. Salt soaks, ointment, no hydorgen perxoid, blah blah.
I got her a pair of piercing earrings that are 14K gold and put them in yesterday. Right now they are a bit red and I'm not sure how it will work. By now the others would have been gunky. She does have eczema and it looks like she might have that on one of her ear lobes. Maybe this is the problem? I know if this doesn't work I'm taking them out for good. I'm just really sad about the whole thing and lost as to why now? I wish I had never bought those stupid Kmart earrings. I just wanted to vent about this because I love her with earrings so much, but if it's going to be a problem then I guess I have to accept it. Any tips or advice is welcome too. For now I just keep cleaning them 3 times a day.
