Pediatric Ear Piercing in Jacksonville Fla for Babies & Kids
Wondering where to get my baby’s ears pierced in Jacksonville Florida? Carither Pediatric Group’s nurse practitioners offer infants & children ear piercing (ages: 4 months & older). Pediatric ear piercing at Carithers is only available after the child’s second set of vaccines. Our medical professional administered ear piercings service is a separate visit from their check- up and can include a 30 minute pre-visit application of numbing cream. Ear piercing is not billed to your insurance and the fee is due at the time of appointment. The flat fee of $60 covers the titanium gemstone earrings and the piercing itself.
What Can Make Ear Piercing Less Painful for My Child?
Most parents bringing their children to get their ears pierced are worried about the pain their child can experience. The numbing cream that is applied before the visit can help reduce some of the pain for your child. This cream is a topical anesthetic that is applied to the earlobes and helps numb the earlobes to diminish pain. Applying ice on the earlobes within 30 minutes of your visit can also help dull some of the pain.
