It is great to have a smooth and good looking piercing. But what if your piercing causes an infection? A piercing really needs proper aftercare. Luckily, we know exactly how to take care of it. Check out 7 things you should know about healing a piercing fast and easily.
Normal Sensitivity After Getting Pierced
After getting a piercing, the skin around it can become red and a little thicker than usual. It can also get sensitive when touched. This is completely normal so nothing to worry about. In fact, you do not have to worry about it. With the right treatment you can prevent infection and let your piercing heal quickly.
1. Healing Your Piercing Fast and Easily
Healing your piercing fast and easily requires good hygiene. So you need to clean the skin around your new piercing properly every day. It is also important to clear out any soap or shampoo residue after showering. Because residue can cause irritation and infection if left in the wound.
2. Cleaning Hard to Reach Spots
In case your piercing is in a hard to reach spot you can let it rinse in a sterile saline solution for 15 minutes. Put a gauze in the solution and put the wet gauze on your piercing. You can do this as often as needed. But make sure to pat the area dry afterwards. If you leave the area wet for too long, bacteria can accumulate and cause infection.
3. Healing Your Piercing by Activating Your Immune System
It is very important to have a good immune system. Fortunately, your immune system is not a matter of chance. You can actually support it by making sure you sleep well, reduce stress to a minimum and have a varied and healthy diet.
4. Do Not Touch Your Piercing
Of course, it is essential to leave your piercing alone. Sure, you may want to play with it. But not yet, not while it is healing. Try not to touch it and do not put pressure on it. That means do not sleep on it either.
5. Use A Professional Piercer
All of the advice above works well provided that your piercing is of the right size and shape. That is why it is important to get pierced by a licensed piercer in a professional studio.
6. Get the Right Materials
Last but not least, make sure your piercing consists of the right material. Correct materials for a piercing are titanium, surgical steel 316l, solid gold and all other hypo-allergic and highly polished materials.
