Allergy - but only to earrings?
Over the years I have developed an allergic reaction to earrings. I've tried expensive gold earrings, cheaper earrings, even the hypoallergenic kind bother me. My earlobes start to feel inflamed and sore to the touch almost immediately after putting in earrings, and they stay like that for a day or two afterward. I take precautions when I put earrings in and properly sterilize my ears as well as the earrings, but it always happens. Anyone have any suggestions on what this could be and/or how to solve the problem?

I knew a woman with a similar condition or situation. She had to wear ear rings with 18K posts or surgical steel posts.
I had the same problem as you when I was younger and it went on for years.
