8. 5 hours won't
close them permanently, but there may be a bit of dried blood or pus in the holes that could make it seem like they were closed. As you try to put the earring post in there could be some resistance and that might freak your daughter a bit. It happens to my ears still after 40 or so years of having pierced ears. My suggestions would be to swab the posts of the earrings you are going to put in with alcohol and then put a thin smear of antibiotic ointment on them. That will help lubricate the posts going in and soothe the holes. I actually swab every pair of earrings I put in with alcohol before I put them in and if I haven't had earrings in in a while, I'll use the antibiotic ointment as well to prevent problems.
