How fast can I stretch my ears?
The general healing time between stretches should be about 2 weeks until you get to 0ga. Once you are at 0ga it is recommended to wait 1 month between stretches. It is important to not rush the stretching process. This is the leading cause of permanent damage to your ears. You should definitely wait until your ears are completely healed and you are comfortable stretching them.
Stretching too fast can lead
Blowouts – A blowout is when the tissue is pushed back when stretching and heals like that. A lot of scar tissue builds up and you have small “growths” on the backs on your earlobes. This is permanent and usually requires surgery to remove this extra tissue.
Tearing – Your gauge can rip your ear and cause lines of scar tissue to run through your earlobe. Blood usually occurs and it is extremely painful. This can happen from stretching too fast or trying to stretch with a rough object. (usually homemade)
Infection – The main cause for this is
not keeping the piercing clean. You should wash it with anti-bacterial soap
and atleast 2 times a day while it is healing or being stretched. Stretching
too fast can cause bleeding to occur and bacteria can get inside the wound easily.
The area can turn a noticeable red or purple color. Infections can also produce
a puss or a crusty fluid.
These wounds are highly uncomfortable and undisired. Taking cleaning for granted or not taking proper care of fresh piercings has severe conseqences.
