HOW DO I KNOW IF MY PIERCING IS INFECTED?
Always be certain to follow our piercing aftercare instructions, found here.
Just as with any infection, a sure sign is pus. If there is pus coming out of your piercing assess the situation immediately by following these recommendations.
First and foremost do not use ointments such as Neosporin on the area. These block air from circulating. Second, do not remove the jewelry. The holes of your piercing may close around the infection potentially creating an abscess. If the pus is white your infection is minor and the use of a strong antiseptic for a few days should clear it right up. If the pus is yellow, your infection is more serious and a strong antiseptic does not clear it up in a few days please return to our studio so that we can take a look at it and help you. If the pus is green this indicates a very serious infection, you should come into our studio as soon as possible. If you are unable to come back to the studio please see a doctor.
