Hi. Im nearly 59 with a few medical issues, including hypothyroidism

This answer was rated:

Hi. I'm nearly 59 with a few medical issues, including hypothyroidism (I take 100mcg Thyroxine daily; enlarged prostate; and skin problems (eczema; hives; tinea), which I successfully treat with topical steroid cream and moisturiser. Between 1978 and 1983, I had my left lobe pierced three times, twice in the same place, and a second piercing. But in 2009, I decided to let them all heal over. But in a midlife crisis, I've decided to either re-open one of them; or get another piercing. It's been so long; could a lobe piercing hurt ; or could I suffer serious infection given my advanced age and health issues?
