Customer Question
I had a faith...

I had a faith piercing in my ear fall out. I went somewhere & am not sure how sterilized the equipment they used was to put another earring in. Am I at risk if they didn’t pierce me, just put new jewelry in?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the ear issue? Have you had any colds or flus recently?

Sorry daith piercing

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. Piercing is 2 months old so probably not completely healed.

After two months of piercing there is no risk of any serious infection by just putting the new jewel inside. So nothing at all to worry about. Just clean the area with disinfectant and that's it. No risk of Hepatitis or HIV transmission from such interaction. Rest assured.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
