NeilMed and Arm&Hammer Simply Saline Wound Wash is recommended for cleaning your piercing 3-4 times a day for 4-6 months or longer, throughly spray both side of your piercing and gently push the jewelry back and forth as you continue to spray both side of the hole to remove residue/build-up. Healing time varies on each individual piercing, please contact our piercer if you have any questions about your piercing and healing time period.
Do not use rubbing alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, Bactine, Betadine or Hibiclens.
Use products that will not irritate the piercing and will facilitate fast healing,such as:
- A mild, fragrance-free liquid soap. Which is preferably anti-microbial or germicidal.
- Packaged sterile saline solution with no additives, or a non-iodized sea salt mixture:
Dissolve 1/8 - 1/4 teaspoon of non-iodized (iodine-free) sea salt into one cup (8 oz) of warm distilled or bottled water.
A stronger mixture is not better; a saline solution that is too strong can irritate your piercing.
- H2Ocean Sterile Sea Salt with Lysozyme spray. Gently push or rotate the jewelry back and forth to remove residue/build-up.
WASH YOUR HANDS before cleaning your piercing! Use the cleaning solutions or H2Ocean sea salt spray for the (entire) healing time. Do this even if the piercing looks or feels healed sooner.
Do not remove the piercing jewelry when the site is crusty, it does more harm to the piercing than good.
Do not play with the new piercing, physical irritation is extremely harmful to the new piercing!
When clothing is in contact with the piercing, make sure it is clean, loose and breathable.
