Congratulations on your childs new piercing!
Now comes the most important part to ensure the best healing possible. Clean your child's piercing for the full healing time. Always wash your hands with soap & water before cleaning the piercing. Minor discharge, crust & redness are normal during the healing process. Infection is rare as long your child is not touching it & proper after care is being practiced.
Use our Anti-Bacterial for a happy healing piercing!
Healing Time: 2 Months
IF THE FOLLOWING OCCUR PLEASE CONTACT US OR COME IN:
Excessive swelling, green/yellow discharge, a rash or excessive redness, or if jewelry is becoming imbedded due to swelling
Anti-Bacterial will help keep your piercing clean throughout the day.
Apply solution twice a day (morning & night) with a cotton swab. Gently clean around the pierced area & allow to dry.
Apply Liquid Bandaid 20 minutes before working out or swimming. This will help to create a seal around the pierced area. Clean with the Anti-Bacterial Solution once your activity is complete.
*It is best to avoid swimming while the piercing is healing*
River, Lakes & Hot Tubs: STAY OUT full healing time
Chlorinated Pools: Stay out 2 weeks minimum
Oceans/Saltwater: Usually okay because it's saltwater
DO NOT use ALCOHOL or HYDROGEN PEROXIDE. These are too harsh to use on a new piercing. These can cause irritation and prolong the healing process. (Do not use NEOSPORIN unless directed by your Piercer or Physician.)
DO NOT Twist, Touch or play with your Jewelry. The only time you want to come into contact with the jewelry is when you re cleaning your piercing.
DO NOT Remove your Jewelry. Wait until the piercing is fully healed before you REMOVE or CHANGE the jewelry. Once piercing is healed you may change the jewelry, but keep in mind that if the jewelry is out for too long the piercing can begin to close.
DO NOT OVER CLEAN. Cleaning is good, but over-cleaning can irritate the piercing.
DO NOT Sleep on the Piercing. If your child sleeps on their piercing their ear may become more red or sore the next morning.
DO NOT Catch your Hair on the Jewelry. If this happens immediately untangle.
