About three weeks ago I got my second hole piercing on my ear lobe. nothing fancy, just the simple piercing.
I know you have to wait 6 weeks before you can change the earrings. So, that means I have 3 weeks left. I was just wondering if I could take the earrings out for like 5 minutes at a time to clean them and my ears? I don't feel like I can properly clean everything when the earrings are in my ear.
Will this close up the hole or slow down the healing process very much? Thanks in advance! :D

For something like this I wouldn't bother taking them out. That being said, the way that piercers and pretty much everybody tries to teach you to be paranoid about it is baloney. I've given myself multiple piercings consisting of making the hole with a large sewing needle, sticking in a ring, and buggering around with it until it's closed, and sometimes having to repierce the hole directly after if something didn't go right. Granted, some people are more prone to infections, but we aren't the porcelain dolls doctors want us to think we are.0
