Piercing Aftercare

Wash your hands before touching your piercing

Do not use soap, alcohol, peroxide, mouthwash or ointment. They damage cells and prevent breathing

Clean your eyeglasses, phone and bedding. Wear loose, clean clothing

Eat well and drink lots of water. Avoid caffeine, nicotine and alcohol

Vitamin C and Zinc speed healing

Avoid lakes and pools during healing

Do not change your jewelry until it's healed to prevent scarring

Rinse with warm water in the shower to soften and remove crusties

or mix 1/8 tsp non-iodized sea salt to 1 cup water for soaking twice daily

Do not over clean or turn jewelry

In case of infection, red streaks, fever, vomiting or dizziness...see a physician

Do not remove jewelry! It needs to drain so you won't develop an abscess

Use a very warm water soaked clean compress
