Healing Tips

Your piercer will give you a complete rundown of how to care for your piercing wound when you get pierced, but one of the most important is not to touch your piercing unless you’re cleaning it. Moving the jewelry will reinjure the area and lead to longer healing time, as well as leave you more susceptible to infections and possibly scarring. A selection of aftercare products are always available for purchase at Almost Famous Body Piercing.

If you need to touch your piercing for any reason, make sure to wash your hands with soap and water beforehand. Due to the location of forward helix piercings, it is helpful to have someone help you occasionally with aftercare by having them check inside the fold of your helix for any built up drainage. Make sure the person helping you washes their hands thoroughly. If they do see discharge inside your ear after you are done with your sea salt soak, have them use a clean cotton swab to gently wipe the remaining discharge away from your jewelry. Use a clean swab each time the area is touched to avoid leaving any discharge from the cotton swab behind. You want to be sure to protect your new piercing(s) when using hair products, using your cell phone, and it’s always best to wash your pillow cases frequently while your piercing is in any stage of healing. Keep your hair pulled away from your new piercings, and if you live in a cold climate, make sure to protect your new piercings when you go outdoors.
