After care instructions for piercing

-Area must be kept clean at al times- clean once daily as follows                                                                                                                                 

(Body piercing after care)

For the next two weeks wash once a day with a liquid antibacterial soap. Wash hands thoroughly with soap then apply a small amount to the finger tips and work to lather. Apply lather to area and piercing and rotate jewelry through piercing several times. Let sit for several minutes. Rinse thoroughly in the same manner. It is best to wash piercing in the shower. Wash the piercing as the last thing you do before finishing shower so the water can run on piercing for several minutes to loosen up tissue. The piercing may produce a lymph discharge this will be white or clear and may dry to a crusty formation on the piercing and jewelry. Salt water can be used to remove it.

Mix ¼ teaspoon of salt in a Dixie cup of water(distilled or spring) or pre mix ½ teaspoon of salt in 8or10 oz bottle of water.

Start up jewelry should remain in for two to three months but can be changed if changed by a piercer after two weeks.

Only use jewelry made from 316Lstainless steel, titanium or niobium. It is very strongly recommended that you only purchase jewelry from a reputable piercing establishment as reputable shops will sell quality jewelry. Avoid mall outlets as the jewelry tends to be of inferior quality and is also being sold by people with no knowledge of piercing or metal bio compatibility.                                                        

 (Oral piercing after care)

                                                                                                                                   For the next two weeks after consuming food rinse with an alcohol free antibacterial mouth wash. After smoking or consuming any beverage other than water rinse with distilled or bottled water. Swelling can be expected for 24 to 72 hours. Ice can be used to keep the swelling to a minimum. Ibuprophen can also be helpful to reduce swelling, especially at bed time (IF COMPATABLE). It is recommended to have a piercer change start up jewelry after two weeks, as start up jewelry is oversized to allow for swelling and may become uncomfortable when swelling recedes. It is also recommended to check jewelry balls for tightness from time to time (wash hands first).
