rubbing alcohol and peroxide is the same for disinfecting. Clean every so often

Do not use rubbing alcohol!!
It dries out the piercing and creates tiny tears around it causing pain and bleeding for longer than if you used the proper cleaning solution.... plus increases the risk of infection. If you ran out, go buy some more. Normally it takes 6-10 weeks for lobes to fully heal so you might be ok. Basically, the little tunnel which the earring goes into has to be fully healed all the way through.
