The biggest cause of infection is touching your piercing with dirty hands. (This will only prolong the healing process!)
If you need to touch your piercing, make sure your hands have been cleaned thoroughly with antibacterial soap.
Clean your piercing 2-3 times daily for 2 weeks ONLY with an antibacterial solution. ("doc pain piercing aftercare spray” is a good products to use and is specially made for piercings.
DO NOT USE ALCHOHOL OR PEROXIDE on your piercings. (These products will damage tissues and prolong the healing process.)
Spray your jewelry as well as the qtip with antibacterial solution. (Make sure there is no discharge or crusties around your jewelry.)
Do not move it or rotate your piercing/implant, your bodies own mechanical movement will do it. (you don’t want to damage the area.)
After the 2 weeks STOP using the antibacterial solution. ONLY USE A Q-TIP and some hot water to clean your jewlery.
For Tongue and Web Piercings, rinse mouth 2-3 times a day with mouthwash for 7 days, eat or drink anything cold with a lot of ice cubes(ie.slushies and popsicles),If at any point you feel the piercing is swollen to a point where it is restricting your breathing, remove the jewelry and/or contact us or see a physician right away.
