Starter, Sleeper, and Healing Earrings

All of the earrings on this page are perfect for wearing earrings again for the very first time! They are pure, non-allergenic and comfortable for sleeping in while you finally heal your eczema with earrings in place, or simply just get used to wearing earrings again.

All earrings on this page (and throughout this Site, labeled as perfect for "Starter/Sleeping/Healing"), come with my Professional Allergy Care/Advice, on how to clean and heal your pierced ears of allergy symptoms.. WHILE abstaining from ALL potential other allergens. Additionally, these full Follow-Up services are included in the price of my Starter earrings, should any questions or concerns arise.

All earrings on this page are made from Pure Niobium or Pure Grade-1 or Grade-2 Titanium, with no alloys or other materials that could irritate your sensitive unhealed ears. Once you heal and/or get used to wearing earrings again with one of these earrings in place, you can then graduate to the "prettier" Non-healing (daytime) earrings on my other pages!

Only the earrings on this page (and when used in addition to my Care Instructions) are eligable for my money back non-allergenic guarantee.

4 Extra Medical Plastic Clutches
Small Clear Medical PVC Plastic Clutches, are comfortable and hypo-allergenic. PVC, Rubber, and Plastic is on the potential sensitizer list, so if you already know you cannot wear these items, I recommend you purchase earscrews or hoops instead of post earrings as these types of earrings do not use clutches at all.

Price Per Set of Four: $1.50

Your first pair of healing earrings will arrive with complete care instructions on what products and procedures to use during the initial healing period. These are the only products that are 100% Non-Allergenic and that I recommend for healing pierced ears. You can purchase these products at regular stores, or you can purchase a trial size of these products here.
