  2. As part of traumatic tear of the ear lobe by infants, children of the mothers while in their lap/play.

What is torn?

It is usually the soft lobule of the ear which lacks any cartilage frame-work which gets torn due to the weight of hanging jewelery, even the ear margins can get torn due to heavy and sharp wired jewellery through the cartilage frame-work resulting in poor cosmetic appearance and continous attempt by the affected female to hide it.

How to prevent it ?
It can be prevented by wearing lighter studs for daily wear and wearing of heavier jewellery for as shorter duration as possible /avoid its use. Be careful while playing with children and wear shorter ear jewelries while handling them.
