In August last year, XJ had her ear pierced. I've blogged about it over here. I still remember Yan commented that I should buy her pure gold / white gold in exchanged with the original earrings used during the piercing process to avoid infections.
In Dec (which was 4 months after the piercing), XJ complained of itchiness on her ear lobes. I noticed they were swollen and red. I quickly removed her earrings and cleaned her ears with mild salt water. MIL advised me not to remove the earrings but to apply oil around her ears. However, seeing her suffering like that, I insisted to remove the earrings.
Then, I remembered Yan's comment and on that weekends itself, hubby and I went to the gold shop to buy a pair of pure gold earrings for this princess. Instead of choosing something with a stopper at the end of the earrings, we chose the circle shaped one. At least, it won't collect dirt around the stopper. That pair of gold earrings cost RM85 nett which is consider cheap.
XJ was delighted when I showed her the gold earrings. Immediately after she put on the gold earrings, her infections disappeared. Luckily she is not allergic to GOLD !
|No more infections ! Phew......|
