i got my ears pierced today around 3pm, would i be fine to swim in the sea tomorrow lunchtime?
i cant find much online, so was just wondering if anyone knew :smile:

I would not recommend not because of the swimming, but because of the dirt and sand and the hygiene in general at the beach.
Hiya, I agree with the above comment, don’t swim at at all until they are fully healed

I think it’s about a month that you should wait if it’s an earlobe piercing. Trust me it’s not worth a potential infection which could affect the healing ans finished result. One of my first ones is stretched from switching earrings too soon and to ones that were too heavy and i can’t wear heavy earrings.

If you don't want to have some infection - you better avoid swimming for some time
