Keep Your New Piercing Clean
You have to keep it clean. If your piercer suggests you clean an external piercing with soap make sure you use gentle cleanser, something like baby shampoo.
Clean Your Piercing With Homemade Sea Salt Solution
Stir 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt into 1 cup of warm, sterile water until it's fully dissolved. If your skin is dry or generally irritated adding 2 to 3 drops of tea tree oil to your sea salt solution will help your piercing. Tea tree oil is a natural moisturizer and antiseptic. Stir into your solution, if, desired, and then clean your piercing. Soak a cotton ball in solution, apply it to your piercing for 15 to 20 seconds, dispose of it and repeat with a fresh cotton ball. Or, if possible, submerge your whole piercing in the solution for 3 to 5 minutes.
DO NOT Play With Your New Piercing
The easiest way to introduce bacteria is to handle your piercing.
