Taking care of a new piercing

Cleaning :

To do so, you need to use sea water for nose for kids or collargol 2-3 times a day. Cotton buds need to be soaked in solution and then you can clean the area near piercings from each side. After complete healing of piercing you should still clean the area near the pierced place as a form of hygiene and doing what is best for your health.

In case of the swelling :

You need to infuse an oak bark (you can get one at the pharmacy) as per instruction on the back of a package. When it cools down you need to soak a gauze pad one or three times a day for 3 to 6 minutes.
