Be warned! Do not buy and wear cheap earrings that you commonly find on the streets.
Facebook user Elace Batula shared her horrific experience after she underwent a minor surgery after wearing cheap earrings.
The post reads,
I just want to share my experience that if you ever have plans of wearing these kind of earrings, think twice or you'll be a victim like me, too.
It's been months since it was stucked [sic] in my left ear. Many hands have tried to take it off, they even used tools but they just can't. So yun nga since pa-hard-to-get siya, I've given up and let it be stucked [sic] there for months causing it to rust because it gets wet everytime I take a bath, causing my ear to get irritated by it.
Because of my negligence and not giving a d@mn about it for a long time, these past days I've been experiencing swelling and wincing everytime it's accidentally touched. Just until then, I got it operated and have my ear tore and stitched by a doctor.
Now, a 20-peso-earing cost me approximately 10k-peso-operation which can now buy original earrings. Because of being frugal, I am led to having greater expense plus having a katawa-tawa face because of this awkward look of having a dressing that looks like a one-sided headphone. Everybody stares at you like you look like an alien. I would also even laugh when I look at myself in the mirror.
What I'm trying to say is that let's be careful in wearing cheap earrings cause some people are allergic to it and some may be victims of this kind of situation too.
