Water reaching inside ear piercings while making ghusal

Q: For ghusal to be complete, water should reach every part of the body. If a female is not wearing ear rings, how should the water reach inside that part of the skin of the ears? Someone told me that a female should use a pointed thing like a needle,or something and make it wet and put it inside the pierced part. Is this true?

A: In whichever way the water could reach she should let the water pass through.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
