Piercing Care

By: Liopased Ioaspa

In order to prevent an inflammation, your fresh piercing demands for constant ongoing care. During at least two weeks, twice a day minimum, you will have to clean your wound with special liquid disinfectant, up to complete healing will be achieved. Please use only oil-free antiseptic creams, forget about the sauna, pool and solarium, swimming in natural water basins and especially in sea water, because sea water slows the healing process.

Should any complications (such as severe redness, pain, etc.) occur, rush to the dermatologist immediately. Could happen, the doctor will have to remove your ring.

If you have managed without an inflammation, wear first adornment until the wound heals completely. Otherwise, it might easy catch dirt, and this time an inflammation will develop for sure.
No other care products are allowed, except recommended ones, and no other creams should be used but oil-free.

Please refer to the description of the professionally done piercing after-effects provided below:

1) Stable redness, which is expected to go down in 3-4 days;
2) Bleeding can last over some two-three days;
3) Extra sensitivity will bother you for approximately 2 weeks;
4) There will be some discharge of white-yellowish liquid for nearly 2 weeks, which is just normal and good for healing;
5) It could slightly decrease in size.

See below for all the stuff you would need for your aftercare procedures:

- Special solution, broad spectrum antiseptic. This liquid they will recommend you in the piercing saloon.

- You have to rinse piercing twice a day - in the morning and in the night - for the entire healing period. To do this, soak cosmetic swabs or tissue in your special liquid and clean the area of puncture from discharged blood plasma and lymph. Don't even think about scratching off this bloody scab from around the ring with your nails! To remove it, moist the ring with the soaked little cotton pad, pressing it against the area for half an hour. Do not turn your ring over!

- There is no need to clean your piercing for too often, and it is not recommended. You don't want to irritate your wound and thus prolong the healing. On the other hand, it is not advisable to rinse the puncture less than 2 times a day, as it may allow an infection to develop.
