How long of not wearing earrings will it take before they close (lobe 14 years after being pierced )?

I hardly ever wear my earrings, maybe 5-10 times a year and they never seem to close and I think that’s really weird.

My ears also always feel irritated after wearing earrings (never during), which is why I don’t wear them that much, they produce a bit of puss but I don’t think I’m allergic bc it doesn’t seem to matter what they’re made of, it’ll still happen.

Any ideas what’s going on and how I can stop the irritation after wearing them.

try using rose water for the irritation. usually they would close 3-6 months after not wearing earrings but it depends on you

If a bit of puss is coming out then the piercing probably isn’t clean. Maybe try the cleaning the piercing with rubbing alcohol to get any bacteria out. If the piercing is unhappy that might be why it isn’t closing.

^ equally if it's been 14 years of having them pierced it's going to take a lot longer for them to close, depending on your ears. my friend had a similar situation and she went almost a year I think without earrings but nothing really happened and she can still wear earrings

All sounds normal to me. Mine haven't closed despite me not wearing earrings for a number of years at one point. The irritation is also pretty normal - make sure that you disinfect the earrings before you put them in. If you start wearing earring regularly again, the irritation will go away after a few days.
