Hole close up?

    Hi, I was wondering if the peircing in my ear lobe will close if I don't wear any earrings for a while. One of my piercings is stretched out, and I want it to close up so I can repierce it, but I've heard that the hole will never close in the lobe after so long. It's been about 6 years since it was first pierced. Will the hole close now?

    Thanks!

    You pose an interesting question. This is my experience.
    I have at one time worn 7 earrings in one ear and 6 in the other.
    Some of the holes have closed but are still visible from the outside. None of my holes have completely disappeared.
    For most people leaving you earrings out may cause the hole to close up, but it is usally always evident to some degree.
    However, I have seen a few whose holes are almost invisible and completely closed, so you leaving earrings out for a while may help the stretched hole.
    Applying neosporin or vitamin E may help healing too.
