I recently bought some earrings, nothing fancy just cheap fashion ones. Trouble is the coating is coming off the bars that go through the hole in my lobe and they really irritate so I cannot wear them which is a shame because they are really nice. I do have some good quality ones but they are too good for general day to day wear. I have bought some studs from Avon which are supposed to be for sensitive ears, if these are ok then I may buy some more. Some folks are lucky and can wear any without problems.
