What Causes Torn Earlobes?
Torn earlobes can happen as the result of continuous wearing of heavy earrings or can be a result of unfortunate accidents or robberies. More often earlobes get torn as a result of having little children pulling the earring while they play with adults with large earrings. Also a large group of patients develops elongated or torn earlobes due to prolonged wearing of heavy earrings and it may take years to develop. Large or heavy items will gradually elongate the hole and eventually will tear through the lobe. Once the defect forms it becomes hard to cover with hair or clothing.
