Daughter gets rash from earings

[deleted account] ( 9 moms have responded )

Hello everyone. My 7 year old daughter wanted to change her earings which she got at Clairs and wore for a while. I put on her gold earings. After wearing them for a while I realize there was redness all around so I took them off and put neosporin few times. When they got better I put her old earings back but today I saw redness again and swelling. She wore earing before not sure why she had reaction later. She wants to keep them. She said they don't hurt. What should i do?

Thank you Gena for the link :) I am checking it now. And thanks again to all those that replied. When I saw the redness I got really scared. That Clair place at the mall closed a few months ago so I did not know were to ask. I am going to remove them until all clears and then try again hopefully will find the one that will not cause any problem

She's probably allergic to the metals in the earring. I get the same reaction if I wear any earrings for any extended period of time no matter what metal I put in so I don't bother wearing them.

I think if you take them out make sure they arent infected, you could let her put the earrings in again every now and then to make sure the hole doesnt heal together.I can put my earrings back in after half a year not wearing any.. But i guess it depends on how good your skin heals etc. I saw some antiallergy earrings on the internet,i will send the link.. maybe they could work.

I thought the earings I put on her were 18-carat gold. But I could be wrong. Should I take them off? I am afraid if I do she has to get them pierced again later. Thank your for the advice.

Same here..i can also only wear them for special occasions and if they are in too long it starts itching.

I was allergic to all earrings that werent solid gold.. Try finding out witch ones she can wear. Make sure the ear gets cleaned properbly everday to avoid bad infection.

Some people are allergic to the nickel in them. She may be one of those that can only wear nickel free..
