All new piercings must be cleaned regularly. Oral piercings are cleaned with antiseptic mouthwash ONLY three times a day in order to avoid over cleaning. also drink plenty of bottled water.  Anti-inflamitory medication along with cold fluids or ice aids in preventing and reducing sweling and pain. Smoking, deep kissing, alcohol and spicey MUST be avoided during the healing process.

For all other piercings, a small amount of any mild soap with plenty of clean water seems to work the best.  Soaps that contain deoderants, cold creams or strong purfumes should avoided.  For the first 3 weeks clean piercing daily without rotating it by applying a very small amount mixed with plenty of water to the area around the piercing. Risnse well with plenty of water in the same manner. If a slight irritation is present STERILE saline seems to help. This can be found at any Pharmacy.  Irrigating the piercing with saline has proven to aide in healing. Hydrogen Peroxide, alcohol and ointments should be a avoided.  New piercings, especially nipple, should not be subjected to heavy abuse during the healing process. With proper care infections are rare.  It's up to you to keep your piercing healthy.  If you think you have an irritation contact your piercer or be examined by your physician without delay.... you can always call us.  Minor redness, weeping and discomfort is normal with new piercings.  Navel piercings tend to take as long as a year to heal.  If your piercing is excessively red and sore you may have acquired an infection, do not remove jewelry as this may close the only passage for infectious secretions to exit the body.  A lump behind piercings and implants can occur requiring medical attention to be drained,  do not confuse this with the scar tissue that is normal with new piercings and will shrink in time.  In some cases a small bump may form around the piercing, call your piercer for assistance.  We can Help.  CHECK YOUR BALLS, We can not be responsible for your jewelry falling out.

There are 2 common bumps that occur with a piercings and they are; bacterial pocket and hypertrophic scarring (granulation tissue). These occur when the piercing is traumatized. In the case of a boil (bacterial pocket) a small tear allows microbes to enter the piercing. Boils are often painful and red, and may secrete pus or blood. The other most common bump is a hypotrophic scar. Nose and cartilage piercings, especially industrials, are prone to this type of scar. This type of bump surrounds the exit hole, It is often the same color or a bit darker than your skin and It may feel hard, but often are not painful. They are usually caused by the mere presence of the jewelry and the body's response to protect itself.
