Let's get started and see how to shower with new ear piercing together.
SHOULD I TAKE MY EARRINGS OUT WHEN I SHOWER?
If you recently pierced your ears:
- No, you don’t have to take out your new earrings when you shower.
This is beneficial for proper healing.
- The running water will clean out any debris and crusts that naturally form.
Just make sure that it doesn’t come in touch with shampoo.
- When you finish, don’t dry it with a towel.
This can hurt your newly made ear piercing.
- Clean it with the solution that the piercer recommended to you.
SHOULD YOU TAKE YOUR EARRINGS OUT BEFORE SHOWERING at all?
Have you pierced your ears longer than six weeks ago?
Let's assume that you have.
Cheap fashion jewelry should be removed when showering for sure.
The water might rust the metal, or cause you allergies.
You don’t have to remove precious metals, such as gold and silver earrings if you don't expose them to the shampoo.
When I say "don't have to" it doesn't mean that it's okay to expose your jewelry to water.
Your shampoo or other chemical stuff that you may use could make them get tarnished or change their color.
So do water, but it takes longer to effect on the color of your earrings.

Can you take your earrings out just to change them before 3 weeks?
Hi Maria, if they’re very fresh, put a tape or something on them when showering. You don’t wanna let the shampoo touch the piercing. Although water is okay, shampoo may not be healthy to get to your bloodstream. At the same time it might cause irritation. A week or two after piercing, it should be okay to comfortably take a shower like you always do.
