Well, are these new piercings that get infected, or are they getting infected after you stretch them?

If it's an infection from the initial piercing, try using jewelry for sensitive ears. However, if it's infection due to the stretching, there are a few things you should do, if you haven't done them already.

- Disinfect your jewelry you're using for stretching
- Make sure your hands are clean
- Stretch SLOWLY, taking care of a tiny bit at a time
- Try to avoid touching your jewelry, ESPECIALLY when your hands have not been washed beforehand

If you have any questions about stretching, feel free to even PM me. I've stretched my ears, and even helped my one friend stretch hers.
