What Is Normal :
First day can have some bleeding, swelling, tenderness, or bruising. While healing there can be some discoloration, tightness, itching, secretion of fluid (not pus) that will form some crust on the jewelry. Even healed the jewelry may not move freely in the piercing so do not force it. If you fail to clean your piercing regularly a smelly secretion may build up. A piercing may seem like it has healed quickly. But that is because tissue heals from the outside inward, and although it feels fine, the interior remains fragile. Be patient and keep cleaning through the entire healing period. Even fully healed piercings can shrink or close in minutes after having been there for years. This does vary from person to person. So if you like your piercing please keep your jewelry in.
What To Do :
Wash your hands before touching your piercing for cleaning. Leave your piercing alone. It is not necessary to rotate your jewelry. Exercise is okay. Make sure your bedding is washed and changed regularly. Wear clean, comfortable, clothing that protects your piercing while you are sleeping. Showers are best. Bathtubs tend to hold bacteria.
What To Avoid :
*rubbing alcohol *hydrogen peroxide *antibacterial soaps *iodine *ointments *Bactine *contact lens solution *eye drops *over cleaning *tight clothing
*playing with jewelry *rough play *baths *hot tubs *pools *oral contact *bodily fluids *excessive caffeine *nicotine *alcohol *recreational drugs *lotions *beauty products *do not hang charms from jewelry
*do not sleep directly on healing cartilage (can shift piercing. Place travel pillow on top of regular pillow and then place your ear in the opening to avoid this.)
These can cause the formation of unsightly and uncomfortable scar tissue, migration of jewelry, prolonged healing, and other possible serious complications.
Basic Cleaning Instructions :
Wash your hands thoroughly before touching your piercing for any reason. Gently lather soap around the piercing and rinse as needed. Avoid using harsh soaps with dyes or fragrances. Rinse thoroughly to remove all traces of the soap from the piercing. You may have to rotate jewelry to remove all soap creating a squeaky clean feeling. Dry by gently patting with clean disposable paper products because cloth towels can hold bacteria and snag on jewelry causing injury.
Hints and Tips :
Unless there is a problem with your jewelry, leave it in place for the entire healing period. See a qualified piercer to perform any jewelry changes necessary during healing. Leave jewelry in at all times. If removed reinsertion can be difficult or impossible without re-piercing. With clean hands be sure to check your jewelry regularly for necessary tightening. Should you decide you no longer want your piercing, simply remove the jewelry and continue cleaning the area until it closes up. In most cases you should only be left with a small mark. In the event an infection is suspected please do not remove the jewelry without a doctor’s approval. On rare occasions when the jewelry is removed the skin closes up trapping the infection inside and resulting in an abscess. Until an infection is cleared up discuss with your doctor if you should remove, leave in your jewelry, or an appropriate substitute would is best.
