Earlobe tears or splits are extremely common and occur to hundreds of thousands of people. Earlobe damage can occur to individuals who wear heavy, dangling earrings which eventually work their way down through the lobe, separating it as it goes. Large hoop earrings can catch in clothing and also result in a torn earlobe. Small children and babies often grab hold of an earring and pull downward – causing the earlobe to tear. The most common cause of earlobe damage, however, is repetitive daily use of earrings over many years.
