if i take my earring out, How long does it take to close up, if its been about 5 days since I pierced my ear?

It will take few days for the holes to close up if you take out the earrings before 6 weeks are over. However, some people heal faster that others but still, 5 days is too soon to remove the earrings.

It never closes as far as I know, provided it has healed and the skin has grown over the wound. I've left my earrings out for months and they are still there. It may be different when they are new, though.

you shouldnt take your earrings out for at least 2 months after you got them pierced so it can heal. since your ear is obviously not healed completely it will close really quickly.

I thought it was 4 months, that's how long I had to leave mine in.

I know they tell you 4 months but I took mine out after 2 months for about a day (@josenegrete AT MOST one day, you should put them back in at night because even after 2 months it's still not completely healed.It takes about a year I think) and they where fine.

It is still in the healing process so yes. The holes will slowly get smaller. Check the instructions you were given when you got them pierced.
