After Care For Body Piercings

Body Piercing Aftercare advice

CLEANING SOLUTION
A sterile piercng solution can be purchased from Charm inc or other piercing
establishments. Alternatively you can make your own at home : 1/4 tsp of
non-idodised fine grain sea salt (not regular sea salt) to one cup of one
cup preboiled warm water is the perfect ratio. Too much salt can irritate your
piercing. A fresh batch of at home sea salt solution should be made as often
as possible as stored solution can become contaminated.
CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS
• WASH your hands thoroughly prior to cleaning or touching your piercing.
• CLEAN at least twice a day. Soaking a cotton tip in solution and clean both
openings of your piercing removing all “crusties” (dried lymph).
• SOAP once a day. While showering, lather up a small amount of anit-
bacterial liquid soap to clean the jewellery and the piercing.
• RINSE & DRY with disposable paper towels to remove traces of soap and
other bathing products.
• TIGHTEN balls attached to your piercing to ensure you don’t lose them!
WHAT IS NORMAL?
• Initially: some bleeding, localized swelling, tenderness, and/or bruising.
• During healing: some discoloration, itching, secretion of a whitish-yellow fluid
(not pus) that will form some crust on the jewelry.
• Even healed piercings can shrink or close in minutes! This varies from person
to person; if you like the piercing, keep jewelry in, never leave the hole empty.
