Joel Schlessinger MD shares the dangers of wearing large earrings
Joel Schlessinger MD was recently featured on HealthLiving.MSN.com as an expert in the article “10 Fashion Choices That Can Ruin Your Health.” In this article, Joel Schlessinger discusses the dangers of wearing large earrings.
“We frequently see the result of either a shirt that has snagged on the earring or a child who has grabbed it and torn it partially or totally,” he said.
Simply wearing oversized earrings everyday can also stretch the piercing and result in an oval hole, which can lead to a splitting of the earlobe. To prevent your ears from splitting, Joel Schlessinger MD recommends using clip-on earrings or keeping earrings to a manageable size and out of reach of children.
