CARE OF YOUR NEW PIERCING
✔ Spray NeilMed NeilCleanse Piercing Aftercare Spray or a suitable saline spray on the piercing area and allow the solution to absorb into the skin. DO NOT wipe it off. Cleaning your piercing after a shower is the easiest time to do so as the crust gets softer and easier to wash away. Make sure to wash your hands with soap and water before handling or cleaning your piercing.
✗ DO NOT touch the body piercing or rotate jewelry during the healing period.
✗ DO NOT take it out. Body piercings may take many months to completely heal. Changing or removing jewelry should be avoided during this time.
✗ DO NOT let the body piercing come in contact with another person’s bodily fluids.
✗ NEVER use alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, or hand soap to clean your body piercing. These products damage healthy cells and cause scar tissue.
✗ Products that contain petroleum are not recommended as it may collect and promote the growth of bacteria. (Neosporin or Bacitracin)
✗ AVOID oceans, lakes, hot tubs, pools, and any other moist, possibly dirty environments until the piercing is completely healed.
✗ REDUCE the intake of alcohol, caffeine, and aspirin during the healing period.
✗ AVOID alcohol, smoking, chewing tobacco, and spicy foods with a new oral piercing.
✗ AVOID direct sunlight, tanning beds, oils, lotions.
✗ Tight fitting clothes may irritate a new piercing.
✔ Practicing good hygiene helps during the healing period.
