How Long Does It Take for an Earring Hole to Close Up?

The earring holes won't close in a few hours.

But, what is the time frame in which you can go earring-free without having the holes closed?

The answer mostly depends on how old the earring hole really is.

The time is different for a few weeks and a few years.

How Long Does It Take for an Earring Hole to Close Up?

It takes 24 hrs for earring hole to close up if pierced 50 days ago or sooner.

It takes around 3 weeks to close up after 60 days from piercing date.

Note that if your ears develop skin in the hole, they may never close up.

Here's what you need to keep in mind:

  • Do you have your earring hole for no longer than six months?
    I advise you not to remove your earring for longer than one day.
    It will take somewhere between one and two days for the hole to close.

  • Do you have earring holes older than 3 years?
    This means that you are safe.
    At this time, the healing process is so slow.
    You can go earring-free for an extended period of time. 

Now you know how long does it take for an earring hole to close up.
