Put earrings in while they heal. It will be uncomfortable, but you could risk the holes closing. My ears are very sensitive. I have to buy nickel free, sensitive ear earrings and those still irritate my ears. But after I’ve left them in for a few days the irritation goes away. Now, I just wear earrings for special occasions or if they get infected.

Try to buy some medicated piercing earrings. I wouldnt put the old ones back in, but get some new ones. Also use the saline solution twice a day to try and clear the infection.

Whenever my earring holes get irritated, I always dip the post in neosporin before putting the earring on. It totally works/helps heal it right up!

Maybe clean the old earrings in peroxide with a new toothbrush to get all the gunk and dirt off them, as that will irritate your ears and add some antibiotic cream onto it as suggested by MrsCallalily. That should work in the place of new medicated earrings.
