How-To-Care-For-Nipple-Piercings

Popular for both men and women, nipple piercings heal well and are one of the few piercings that you can easily keep to yourself. Nipple piercings are usually pierced through the base of the nipple, not the areola. They can be placed horizontally, vertically or at any angle in between. Nipple piercings can be done with straight barbells or ball closure rings, although many people find that barbells are more comfortable under clothes during the healing period. If you have flat or inverted nipples, please go to an experienced piercer and inform them beforehand. Most people with inverted nipples are able to get them pierced, but it may affect your choice of jewellery.

How To Care For New Nipple Piercings

Nipple piercings should be kept clean and dry. Clean with saline twice daily and avoid submerging the piercing in water. It is important to wear breathable dressings for the first couple of days and allowing the piercing to breathe while healing. We recommend wearing natural fibres and loose clothing – and going without a bra. Take care not to catch the piercing on your clothing when getting dressed and clean the piercing after exercise. Most nipple piercings heal within six to sixteen weeks. If you notice any persistent pain, swelling or unusual symptoms, consult your piercer immediately.

Female Nipple Piercings And Breastfeeding

Having nipple piercings should not cause any problems with breastfeeding in the future, although if you are concerned please consult an experienced piercer or breastfeeding specialist. We recommend that you remove your nipple jewellery before starting breastfeeding. Jewellery can interfere with breastfeeding and make it difficult for your baby to latch on. Nipple jewellery also poses a choking hazard and can harbour bacteria that although harmless for you, can pose a risk for babies. When you are no longer breastfeeding you may be able to reinsert your jewellery, or simply get your nipples re-pierced.

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.

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.

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.

When you are buying nipple jewellery if can be hard to find jewellery that is both attractive and comfortable. Comfort is very important for nipple piercing jewellery – whether you are male of female, it’s a sensitive area. Nipple jewellery can rub against your clothing and the wrong choice of nipple jewellery can really irritate your piercing. I have learned from experience that even a slightly uncomfortable piece of nipple jewellery can become the most annoying thing in the world very quickly!

Thankfully there is an easy solution: PTFE nipple jewellery. PTFE nipple bars are flexible and extremely comfortable to wear. This is because PFTE is one of the most biocompatible materials in the world. It is flexible; hypoallergenic; non-stick and can shorten healing times. The non-stick quality is great for nipple piercings – it means that lymph does not stick to your piercing and it hardly needs cleaning. I recommend PTFE nipple jewellery to anyone with a nipple piercing, especially if yours hasn’t healed properly or is often sore. The best part is that PTFE nipple jewellery comes in lots of cool designs, so you can show off your piercings while keeping them comfortable.

Fake Nipple Rings

These fake nipple rings consist of a ring that fits around your nipple, often with a charm or dangly jewels. These nipple rings don’t look exactly like a real nipple piercing but they are a great option if you fancy some nipple jewellery but don’t have the piercings. They can also be worn with piercings – the rings just sit behind the real piercing jewellery.
