I had my ears pierced when i was a teenager but haven't worn earrings for years. However I want to start wearing earrings again so do i need to get them pierced again? Should this topic even be in style and beauty??

it depends have you tried putting in earrings? some peoples dont heal over some do.

just try with a straight bar, now onw of the ones that you use in a piercing gun(with the butterfly backs), because they go from thin to thicker. Just use a straight gold one.
I have lots of piercing holes and only a couple ever healed up.

have tried to put earrings in but its a bit sore and my ear becomes all red and inflamed. Maybe earrings have nickel in them?

Mine do that if i leave mine out to long, I bear with it and clean them regular, like when you get them pierced and they are usually fine by next day.

I have to admit just sticking a bar through things that are a bit tight in the middle lol. It will be okay in a few hours, just use a clean bar
