My 6 year old got her ears pierced at Claire's on August 23rd.We used the antiseptic solution they gave us and rotated the earrings daily as instructed, for 6 weeks, with no issues.
I noticed today, October 13th, 8 weeks later, that she was missing an earring on one side. I mentioned it to her and she grabbed her ear and insisted it was still there, she could feel it. Upon further inspection I discovered the earring back WAS INSIDE OF HER EARLOBE. Talk about traumatizing.
I was able to use antiseptic spray and q-tips to wiggle it free and remove it. The other side with the earring still in, was also imbedded but not nearly as bad. I was able to remove that also. She is going to have scars on both earlobes.
An hour later, antibiotic ointment, a few bandaids and plenty of anxiety attacks and she is doing just fine, but had it gotten any more imbedded it could have turned out much worse. I included pictures of after I removed the backs.
I have read in several places online this is common with the type of metal Claire's uses.Moral of the story, go to a professional piercer to get your children's ears pierced, or even better, avoid it all together.
