After Care

beep oop_edited_edited.png

1. Wash your hands before cleaning your piercings

2. Mist front and back of piercing site with sterile saline and wait for 60 seconds

3. Wipe away any discharge that has collected around the piercing or on the jewelry with sterile gauze or a clean paper towel. We like to give our gauze or paper towel a little mist with the saline too.

4. Dry your piercing with clean gauze or paper towel. If you have one handy a hair dryer on the cool setting is great for drying piercings

What is Normal?

-Initially: some bleeding, localized swelling, tenderness, bruising

-During healing: some discoloration, itching, secretion of a whitish-yellow fluid (not puss) that will form some crust on the jewelry. The tissue may tighten on the jewelry as it heals.

-A piercing may seem healed before the healing process is complete. This is because tissue heals from the outside in, and although it feels fine, the interior remains fragile. Be patient and keep cleaning throughout the entire healing period.

-Even healed piercings can shrink and close in minutes after having been there for years. This does vary from person to person but if you like your piercing, keep your jewelry in. Do not leave it empty.

What to Avoid

-Avoid touching your piercing. Hands are gross and its one of the worst things to do to a healing piercing.

-Avoid cleaning with alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, antibacterial soaps, iodine, or any harsh products, as these can damage cells. Also avoid ointment as they prevent necessary air circulation.

-Avoid Bactine, pierced ear care solutions, and other products containing Benzalkonium (BZK). These can be irritating and are not intended for long term wound care. 

-Avoid over-cleaning. This can delay your healing and irritate your piercings. 

-Avoid undue trauma such as friction from clothing, excessive motion of the area, playing with the area, and excessive cleaning, These activities can cause the formation of unsightly and uncomfortable scar tissue, migration, prolonged healing, and other complication.

-Avoid all oral contact, rough play, and contact with others' bodily fluids near your piercing during healing.

-Avoid stress and recreational drug use, including excessive caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol.

-Avoid submerging the piercing in unhygienic bodies of water such as lakes, pools, hot tubs, ect. Or protect your ears by using a waterproof wound sealant bandage. These are available at most drug stores are work best for nipple, navel, and surface piercing placements. 

-Avoid all beauty and personal care products on or around thee piercing including cosmetics, lotions, sprays, ect.

Sleeping directly on the healed cartilage piercing can cause irritation, even cause shifts in the piercings angle. Placing a travel pillow on top of your pillow, and then placing your ear in the opening can be helpful to avoid this.
