A long time ago, I wore earrings in 5 holes in my ears, without taking them out for bed. I woke up one morning and the back of my ear-lobes felt raw. So i was messing with it and all of a sudden, puss and blood came out of like all of my earing holes. after that i stopped wearing 11 earings (5 on one ear 6 on the other.) Now i just wear them in the first hole.
