I wouldn't be using baby oil. If you don't have the antiseptic lotion just use warm salty water.

Warm salty water is fine if you dont have the antiseptic it depends where you live on the brand I guess

Especially solicitors. They are a dime a dozen around here and just don't stop.

Also, just a bit of friendly advice, you may want to change your name. Giving out your e mail to everyone like this really makes you vulnerable to no good people on here. Trust me on that. I have been on for years, and there are some wackadoos that you do not want with your personal e mail.

Do you have ear care antiseptic from the piercing place? Because that's what I'd put on them.

NO!!! Baby oil with actually draw more dust, and debris to the ear to cause and infection. Bactine, or go to your local piercing place (claire's, icings, piercing pagoda) and get their solution. Works like a charm. Do NOT use rubbing alcohol or peroxide. It actually will cause more damage than harm. it kills the skin around it, and flakes of skin can get into the whole causing irritation or infection. I used to be a store manager at Claires, and I pierced ears constantly.

The ear piercing place should sell it. They actually should have provided it for you.
