Give Your Piercing Some TLC with our cleaning tips.

Getting a new piercing is exciting, but it's important to give it the care it needs to heal properly. Here are some tips for aftercare of fresh piercings:

 

  • Clean your piercing a least once day with Neilmed saline solution. You can buy saline solution such as Neilmed from us or at a reputable piercing shop. Please avoid making your own as this can lead to infections.

  • Wash your hands thoroughly before cleaning your piercing. A piercing is an open wound and dirty hands or fingernails can transfer bacteria.
  • Avoid touching or moving your piercing unnecessarily. This can irritate the piercing and slow down the healing process as well as possible infections.

  • Do not remove your jewellery during the healing process as it will begin to close immediately.

  • Don't wear tight clothing or jewellery that could rub against your piercing. This could also irritate the piercing and lead to infection.

  • Avoid swimming or submerging your piercing in water until it is fully healed. This could introduce bacteria into the piercing and cause an infection. 

  • If you experience any excess pain, redness, excess swelling, or unusual discharge from your piercing, see a doctor and contact your piercer immediately.

  • The healing time can vary depending upon your age, health status, general diet, lifestyle and care of the piercing.

Proper aftercare routine will ensure that your piercing heals rapidly and easily.

Here are some additional tips:

  • Always use clean hands when cleaning your piercing.
  • Pat your piercing dry after cleaning it with Sterile Gauze.
  • Avoid using harsh soaps or shampoos on your piercing.
  • If you have a crust forming around your piercing, you can gently remove it with your aftercare solution.
  • Moisture can lead to bacteria. Dry the area well with sterile non-woven gauze or using the cold setting on a hairdryer.
  • Be patient! The healing process can take several weeks or even months.
