    Maintain a Healthy Isotonic Environment

    • Finish each shower cleaning with a quick full rinse with 0.9% Sterile Saline Spray like NeilMed Aftercare Spray. We sell this in-store with a fine misting tip specially made for piercing use. Or it can be found in the first aid aisle of most drug stores labeled as "Wound Wash" . Please double check that it has no additional ingredients.
    • Saline for contacts or products for nasal spray should not be used.
    • Piercings may then be air dried or gently blotted dry with a single use lint-free paper towel or gauze.
    • Special attention should be paid to a piercing in a small enclosed area, like the rook or navel. It is important to avoid allowing the area behind the jewelry to remain wet for prolonged period. A hair dryer on a cool setting can help dry the area without disturbing the piercing with too much movement.

    Oral Piercing Aftercare

    Lip piercings can be taken care of just like a regular piercing, with the addition of these two steps:

    • After eating or smoking, swish your mouth out with bottled or distilled water.
    • Oral piercings can swell quite a bit. To keep that swelling under control, you can drink cold drinks, use cold compresses or take an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory.

    Tongue piercings can be taken care of by just following these two steps, no need to use saline:

    • After eating or smoking, swish your mouth out with bottled or distilled water.
    • Oral piercings can swell quite a bit. To keep that swelling under control, you can drink cold drinks, use cold compresses or take an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory.
    * DISCLAIMER: These guidelines are based on a combination of vast professional experience, common sense, research and extensive clinical practice. This is not to be considered a substitute for medical advice from a doctor. If you suspect an infection, seek medical attention. Be aware that many doctors have not received specific training regarding piercing. Your local piercer may be able to refer you to a piercing-friendly medical professional.
