Proper care is very important for the complete healing of your new tattoo. There is always a slight risk of infection, as with any break in the skin. Follow directions carefully to minimize the risk of infection.

Piercing Care

Body piercing creates breaks in the skin and/or mucous membranes which can admit viral and bacterial infection. In order to minimize the risk of diseases transmitted, thorough care should be taken to prevent contact of any new piercing with others bodily fluids. We don't want your body part to fall off, now do we? So, this is how you need to take care of the new hole in your body.
Rinse your mouth with Listerine at least twice a day and after each meal for about 10 to 14 days. Ice during the first 2 to 4 days will help reduce swelling. Refrain from oral or oral-genital contact for at least 3 weeks following the piercing.
Care as described above (tongue) is recommended for the mucous membrane side of the piercing. Skin care involves gently removing and crusted, dry matter around the piercing with soapy water and q-tips. Warm water softens dried secretions, easing their removal without rubbing thus avoiding irritation. Apply Bactine to the clean piercing at least twice a day for 20 days maximum.
Wash your hands thoroughly with anti-bacterial soap before any contact with your piercing. Gently remove any crusted, dry matter around the piercing with soapy water and q-tips. Warm water softens dried secretions, easing their removal without rubbing thus avoiding irritation. Apply Bactine while gently rotating the jewelry in the orifice. Dry well with a clean cloth or paper towel as humidity favors infection. Use the antiseptic solution at least twice a day for 20 days maximum.
Wash you hands thoroughly with anti-bacterial soap before any contact with piercing. Remove any dried discharge from the jewelry using swab and warm water before rotating the jewelry. Apply soap, working into a lather while rotating the jewelry for at least 15 seconds. Rinse thoroughly under running water. Dry the piercing with tissue or cotton swabs. Do not allow your piercing to come in contact with another persons bodily fluids during the healing process. This includes saliva and semen. While new piercings do not prevent sexual activity, appropriate barriers should be used. Warm salt water soaks will help remove dried discharge and lymph secretions and relieve itching. Use 1/4 teaspoon Epsom salt per 8 oz water. There is no need to clean the piercing after salt soaking, however soaking does not replace cleaning. Genital piercing may bleed between 12 and 24 hours depending on the depth and complexity of the piercing.
The most frequent cause of infection with any piercing is touching the piercing or jewelry with unwashed hands or contact with unclean items such as clothing, bedding and hair. Any other common sense things you can do to keep your piercing clean will also be helpful. Staying out of pools, hot tubs, hot spring, etc., will help speed the healing process by keeping bacteria out of the piercing.
