Here is a handy tip to stop those sore, red, infected ears!
Spray a little perfume on your thumb and fore finger and rub onto ear wires or posts (you can also rub onto your ear lobes), allow to dry and put earrings on. Do this everytime your wear your earrings - it really works & you'll smell good too! Otherwise, why not try a pair of CLIP ON earrings, they come in all sorts of modern styles too! :)
