- Always thoroughly clean your hands with an antibacterial soap before handling your new piercing.
- Use a couple drops of the ‘Southside Sea Solutions’ on your new piercing 2-3 times daily (no rinse) OR for oral piercings, use one spray of the Protat Oral to your new piercing 2-3 times daily (RINSE thoroughly afterwards).
- Mix 1/4 of a teaspoon of fine-grain non-iodized sea salt (NOT table salt, Epsom salt or Kosher salt) in one cup of warm water. Soak your new piercing for 5-10 minutes, twice daily to speed the healing process. Make sure you use a clean container! (Coffee mugs, shallow bowls, and shot glasses work best for soaking. A clean cotton ball soaked in said solution works well for piercings difficult to soak.) OR Purchase a prepared saline solution, and warm it in the microwave for a similar soak. Confirm that the saline has no harmful additives and is labeled ‘isontonic saline’ or 0.9% sterile saline.
- Rinse your piercing after soaking it to ensure the fisula does not get cut up by sharp salt crystals. It is never harmful to rinse twice! Any secretions left over should now be softened and easy to remove with a cotton swab or gauze.
- You may use a basic glycerin based soap such as Pears, Soft Soap, or Neutrogena once a day. Lather a small amount of soap in your hand before gently applying it to your new piercing. Rinse, gently moving the jewlery to ensure all the soap residue is gone. Avoid using regular soap on your piercing as it’s often too harsh and will prolong the healing process.
- For oral piercings rinse with an alcohol free, anti-fungal mouth wash twice daily. Gargle the same sea salt mixture described above a couple times a day. Rinse with clean water prior to eating, drinking, smoking, or kissing. Oral sex should be avoided for at least a week prior to receiving your new oral piercing.
- Never use hydrogen peroxide, Bactine, rubbing alcohol, iodine or Polysporin on body piercings! These are much too harsh for healing a piercing as they can lead to drying and cracking. Petroleum based ointment should be avoided as they clog pores and do not allow for the piercing to breath.
- DO NOT change your jewelery before your piercing has healed. If one must make an exception (improper sized jewelery, surgery, job interview etc.), contact your piercer for a possible alternative.
