Re: How to remove earring? - August 27th 2011, 08:51 PM

I would say a week is too early to be changing it as it can increase your chance of infection. I had to wait 6-8 weeks before changing my cartilage piercing.

To get it out you have to change the piercing try soaking it in warm water to loosen it. Then use gloves or a towel (if your very careful you can use pliers) to hold the back still while twisting the front. Twist it to your right. You might just have to try for a bit every now and again and eventually it will loosen up. If not go back and get it take out.
