Will twiddling my new piercing damage my ear?

It's the top bit of my ear. I've only had it done a few days ago.
I keep twiddling it around lol, is this bad? Could it infect it or make the hole or disformed?

  • Yeah it just rips the new healing part of your ear over and over.

  • Yeah, gotta watch that a infection doesn't start but most likely it's healing

  • Well, you don't want the hole to close tightly over the piercing so, making sure that it is moving freely in the hole is good and the piercing will heal up... just don't yank on it too much.

    Has it gotten inflamed or hot to the touch?

  • You should keep your hands off any new piercings as much as possible because unless you're purell-ing like a motherfucker, your hands are germy and you might get an infection.

    You should never tough your piercing without first washing your hands thoroughly.

  • You could make it infected. I've had my whole face pierced and messing with them defintly can infect them, stop and clean it with warm salt water.

  • You should probably stop doing it. At least for a week or so.
