Swelling will normally occur during the first 3-7 days. During this time, it is important to drink plenty of cold liquids. Sucking on ice cubes can also help to reduce swelling. We recommend that you use an antiseptic mouth wash. It is ideal that the piercing be cleaned after eating, smoking, or drinking anything other than water. Stay away from dairy products and beer for 4 weeks. Avoid kissing and oral sex which can spread bacteria.
We recommend using Soapopular Anti-Bacterial Cleanser, which can be purchased at Black Line Studio, to properly care for these types of piercings. Before cleansing the piercing, be sure to thoroughly wash your hands with soap. For most effective cleansing, apply the cleanser to a cotton swab and softly work it around both sides of the piercing. Afterwards, rinse the piercing thoroughly to ensure all of the Soapopular, crust, and discharge has been removed. Apply Dr. Piercing, 1-2 times daily by breaking the tip and letting the medical solution drip to the other side and apply gently to both sides of the piercing.
Be sure to avoid:
Keeping bacteria and germs out of piercings is vital for safe healing. Dr. Piercing is a natural sterile solution that helps to accelerate the healing process and reduce lumps and scars.
When used on a daily basis, saline solutions help to remove dried discharge and secretions. Dr. Piercing may be used on all piercings except for oral piercings.
It works well in conjunction with the Soapopular Anti-Bacterial Cleanser.
