My ears get sore whenever I wear earrings. I've tried sterling silver. Has anyone had better success with yellow or white gold?

You could try surgical steel?

I only wear platinum but it’s more expensive.

I wore silver earrings for years but can't any longer. I dug out my gold stud s and used tcp on my ears to clean and disinfect them.

I left my studs in for a year but still can't wear silver but am fine with gold

I I had this - swapped all my earring backs for silicone and never looked back!

I couldn’t wear earrings for such a long time as everything I tried seemed to irritate them. I then ordered some from here: and have not had any problems since. Have been wearing my current pair for over a year with no issues smile

Why not try Theirs are the only earrings which give me trouble free ears.

Use clear nail varnish on the backs of them where there is contact with your ears. Your ears won’t be sore anymore

Amazing thanks all for all your tips.

@LockdownQ do you think it was the backs causing the problem then rather than the posts?

I get sore ears from most earrings too. Search hypoallergenic earrings and you'll find a fairly limited range online, mostly studs.

The best ones I've found recently are M&S, which recently made all their earrings "skin friendly". I've loved being able to wear more interesting earrings

Id recommend Solace jewellery every time. I’ll only buy earrings from them now. So nice to not have that hot itchy ear!!!!

I recommend titanium based earrings
