care and cleaning after your piercing

for proper healing and satisfaction with your newly pierced ears, follow these easy cleaning instructions.


please note: many of the problems arising from ear piercing result from poor care after the piercing.


• cleanse the piercing twice a day. be sure to cleanse especially after shampooing, swimming or exercising.

• use our specially formulated ear care antiseptic when cleansing. you may use isopropyl alcohol as an alternative temporary substitution for ear care antiseptic.

• always cleanse hands prior to touching your ears.

• use a clean cotton swab to apply the ear care antiseptic. push the earring gently forward and backward, swabbing between your ear and the earring.

• rotate the earring twice daily to prevent it from adhering to the ear.

• avoid touching your ears except when cleaning.

• cover your ears when using hair spray or perfume.


• make sure the safety clutch is securely locked in place so earring does not fall out of the ear lobe.

• return for a free follow up visit in 4 weeks or sooner if you have any questions or concerns. We'll check to see that you are healing properly and are ready for your next pair of earrings.

• be careful that earrings don't get caught when brushing your hair or pulling clothes over your head. take extra care when exercising or playing sports.

• do not remove earrings before the specified time:


earlobe piercing: keep earrings in for 4 to 6 weeks.
cartilage piercing: keep earrings in for 8 to 12 weeks.


reactions

earlobe: in many cases, reviewing and observing proper aftercare procedures will clear up any irritation in the earlobe.

cartilage: if redness or swelling in a cartilage piercing exists more than 24 hours after the piercing, immediately remove the earring, continue to cleanse the ear, and consult a physician.
