Ear Piercing Aftercare

Whether you have two piercings or twenty, the odds are that your first was an ear piercing. Ear piercings are easy to take care of and heal easily, making them a hassle free piercing, no matter which type of ear piercing you get. There are at least ten different types of ear piercing, and in this post I will outline the basic piercing aftercare that you need to keep your ear piercing feeling and looking great.

Ear Lobe Piercing Aftercare

Ear lobe piercings typically heal in six to ten weeks and are very easy to take care of. The most important thing is to keep your ear piercing clean and dry during the healing period. Clean the piercing twice daily with saline solution and avoid swimming or submerging the piercing in water. Try to keep your hair away from the piercing – your hair can introduce bacteria to the piercing and catch on the jewellery.

Always go to a proper piercing studio rather than a hairdresser or jewellery shop. By going to a piercing studio you are more likely to be seen by a fully trained body piercer in a fully hygienic environment. They will be able to answer your questions and follow-up enquiries are usually free. It is also important to choose needle piercing over a piercing gun. Piercing guns cannot be sterilised and can therefore harbour bacteria that impede the healing process.

Cartilage Ear Piercing Aftercare

The aftercare process for cartilage ear piercings is the same as for an ear lobe piercing: clean twice daily with saline solution and keep it dry. It is important to take special care with cartilage piercings, as the consequences of an infected piercing can be more serious. The infection can become trapped in between the layers of cartilage in your ear and in even destroy the cartilage in extreme cases. Fortunately, infections can be prevented by proper piercing aftercare. However you should consult your piercer if you experience persistent swelling, redness, pain or the skin being hot to touch.


How To Care For Ear Piercings

Ear piercings are probably the most popular type of body piercing the world and there are many different types of ear piercings to choose from. They are easy to take care of but some people make the mistake of thinking that they do not require the same care and attention that other piercings need. That said, as long as you keep your ear piercing clean and listen to your body, there is no reason for you to have any problems at all. This post will tell you how to take care of a new ear piercing and how to make sure that your piercings stay happy and healthy for as long as you have them.

As with any piercing, I recommend that you go to a professional body piercing rather than having it done by a non-professional or somewhere that does not specialize in piercing e.g. a hairdresser or mainstream jewellery shop. A professional piercer will be specially trained and be able to answer all your question about jewellery and aftercare. They should have clean premises and use new, sterile instruments throughout the piercing process. They should be able to answer all your questions and help you make the right decisions. Most people would agree that this is important for other body piercing, but many are less careful with ear piercings. While well intentioned, staff in hairdressers and jewellery shops are not as well trained and do not have a clean, dedicated room in which to perform piercings. This can increase the risk of poorly placed piercings and the risk of infection – it simply isn’t worth it! Your ears deserve better, so always go to a dedicated piercing studio with professionally trained body piercers.


How To Care For Ear Lobe Piercings

Ear lobe piercings are very easy to take care of. You can clean your ear piercing with saline solution or a body friendly oil such as jojoba or olive oil. Simply dip a cotton bud into the oil or saline and gently remove any dirt or lymph from both the piercing site and the jewellery. A new ear piercing may be tender, but it should not hurt to clean it and healed piercings should not hurt at all.

Healed ear piercings can become sore, usually due to a reaction with your jewellery. This is especially common after wearing cheap earrings or jewellery containing nickel. If you suspect a jewellery-based reaction, clean the piercing and switch to non-irritating jewellery such as titanium or BioFlex. If the irritation persists even after changing your jewellery, a salt soak can help. This means soaking your ear piercing in warm water. To do this, fill a suitable container – a shot glass is ideal – with a warm salt solution made with boiled water. Use the hottest water that is comfortable and soak your ear in the solution until it cools. If the irritation still persists, consult your piercer.

How To Care For Ear Cartilage Piercings

Ear cartilage piercings can be cared for in much the same way as ear lobe piercings. However infections in cartilage piercings can be much more serious, so it is important to be vigilant for irritation or changes in your piercing. If your cartilage piercing becomes infected, the infection can spread into the rest of your ear cartilage and cant be very painful. An infected ear cartilage piercing will be very sore, red and hot to touch. It may also swell up. If you think your cartilage piercing if infected and it doesn’t get better in a couple of days I recommend consulting a piercer. They will be able to tell you whether it is serious and what to do. Most piercing infections are minor, but they can occasionally be serious, so it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Now that you have a brand new piercing it is important to keep it clean at all times so that it heals quickly without any problems. At bodyjewelleryshop.com we have a number of products which will help you look after your piercing; our fantastic saline solution will clean your piercings and stop nasty infections. Below I have listed my top tips for you to follow so you get a painless and comfortable piercing.

Ear/Cartilage Piercings:
Clean with a cotton swab soaked in saline solution at least twice a day (Don’t clean your piercing more than three times a day because it will dry out)
Avoid touching your piercing, if you have to touch it then wash hands before.
Rotate piercing because if you don’t the skin will heal to the jewellery.
Clean ears after using products in shower or bath.
Painkillers like Ibuprofen will reduce the swelling.
Contact your doctor at any sign of infection.
Make sure you wash and change your bedding regularly.

Tongue/Cheek/Lip/Labret Piercings:
Avoid hot, acidic spicy and salty foods.
To reduce swelling let some pieces of crushed ice melt on your tongue or drink a cold drink.
Rinse your mouth out 4-5 times a day with alcohol free mouthwash.
Avoid chewing gum, lots of caffeine, tobacco, alcohol and oral sexual contact.
Avoid touching your piercing, if you have to touch it then wash hands before.
Painkillers like Ibuprofen will reduce the swelling.
Contact your doctor at any sign of infection.

Nose Piercings:
Clean with a cotton swab soaked in saline solution at least twice a day.
Painkillers like Ibuprofen will reduce the swelling.
Don’t remove jewellery more than a day at a time after it has healed (When the piercing is healing don’t remove at all)
Use ice to reduce swelling.
Avoid touching your piercing, if you have to touch it then wash hands before.

Nipple Piercings:
Clean with a cotton swab soaked in saline solution at least twice a day (Don’t clean your piercing more than three times a day because it will dry out)
Clean piercing after using products in shower or bath.
Avoid tanning lotions, sun creams and other skin care products.
Use a tissue after washing to dry piercing because towels hold germs.

Navel Piercings:
Clean with a cotton swab soaked in saline solution at least twice a day (Don’t clean your piercing more than two times a day because it will dry out)
Use warm water to remove any crust that has formed.
Avoid swimming pools because of the bacteria and chlorine in water.
Blackline jewellery speeds up the healing process.
Contact your doctor at any sign of infection.
Painkillers like Ibuprofen will reduce the swelling.
Wear comfortable clothing e.g. Avoid wearing tight waist bands on your navel piercing.
Avoid touching your piercing, if you have to touch it then wash hands before.
Lavender and tea tree oil will speed up healing (Consult your piercing professional before you use them)

Genital Piercings:
Avoid creams and bodily fluids coming into contact with your piercing for first few weeks (It is advised to use condoms whilst healing)
Clean piercing once a day with salt or saline solution.
Take showers instead of baths in first few weeks because baths hold a lot of bacteria.
Avoid soaps as it will kill off your healthy bacteria which are healing your piercing.
Avoid touching your piercing, if you have to touch it then wash hands before.
