I let my ear piercings close up (at least they're mostly closed up--I can get an earring in most of the way, but not through the back) due to itching and rash-y stuff. I now wish I'd somehow stuck it out, as I have lots of nice earrings with sentimental value that I want to wear. This is actually the second time I've let them close--you'd think I'd learn, wouldn't you?
Where/how would you go about repiercing? The first time I had them repierced, I went to one of the mall jewelry stores, and they didn't aim exactly through the first hole, which caused some of the later problems, I think. Would I be better off to go to a piercing parlor and just have the same hole repierced? How could I avoid the itchy, rashy stuff this time around? My former piercing studs were 14-Karat gold. All advice welcome!
