Lobe Aftercare

Expected healing time: 4-6 weeks.

  • Wash your hands before cleaning or touching your piercing.
  • Clean atleast twice a day. Soak a cotton tip and clean both sides of the piercing, gently removing any "crusties" (dried lymph).
  • Do no rotate your new piercing. This can cause tearing to the new scar tissue forming. Your skin will naturally 'let go' of the jewelry when healing.
  • Do not remove your jewelry to clean your piercing. 
  • Repeat piercing clean after submerging in any unhygienic bodies of water(bath, pool, ocean etc)
  • Stay Healthy. A healthy body can heal much faster than a run-down one.

What to expect initially:

Localized swelling, tenderness, and/or bruising.

What to expect during healing:

Itchiness, secretion of a whitish-yellow fluid (not pus) that will form a 'crust' around and on the jewelry.

What to avoid:

  • Clean your new piercing with alcohol or any harsh chemicals.
  • Over-clean your piercing. 
  • Try to avoid sleeping on your piercing.
  • Change the piercing jewelry during the healing time. 

Doing any of the actions listed above can cause irritations to your new piercing and prolong the healing period.
