Within the past year my ears started to get really sensitive. I was super sad because even the earrings for sensitive ears started bugging me. I kind of stumbled upon this little trick by accident and it has worked like a charm! Now I wear whatever kind of earrings I want.
Just use vaseline. Dip the pointy part of your earrings in the vaseline. Then put them in your ears like normal. The vaseline seems to coat the earrings and will prevent your ears from getting sore.
Hope you enjoy this trick as much as I do!
