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. 


For closing up your earholes you can wait until it naturally closes up. But if it didn't you can go with a few methods like acid treatment and surgery. 

I'm gonna attach a few videos that you may find interesting. 

In the first one Mama Sage shares her experience and the process.



The second one shows how the surgery is done with before and after results 

 I assume you're not sensitive to see a surgery.



The third one is for the stretched earlobes. Very stretched. 



If you never want to have stretched earholes again, then only wear lightweight earrings. There's so many different types of them that are even cuter than the big ones.

The big ones are impressive but they may have high costs. I'd suggest that only wear big and heavy earrings is the special occasions. Wear lighter earrings during the day.



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

  • Hi Mélodie, It really depends on your body. It’s different from person to person. Give it a couple of weeks and don’t play or touch it until it heals itself. Keep it clean though.

  • I have had my ears pierced for twelve years, and I took off my earings yesterday. The left hole is fine, but I think I accidently strtched the right one, possibly when I was sleeping, since it’s on the side. How long until that little stretch heals, while keeping my hole open?

  • Hi Bianca, yeah it’s okay to leave them out for a week or so since you’ve pierced them long ago.

  • I have had my ears pierced for almost 3 years (3 years in 4 months) is it ok to leave my ratings out for one week 3 days?

  • Hi Love, yeah it’s normal. That little thing like seed may take a very long time to go away in my experience.
