Saline can be used in two ways, to spray and to soak. Saline spray is used by spraying a small amount on the front and back of your piercing 4-6 times a day. Allow the spray to soak into the piercing for a few seconds before rinsing with clean water and patting dry with a clean paper towel. Do not leave the spray on your skin without rinsing as this may cause irritation.
To soak your piercing mix 1/4 teaspoon of non-iodized sea salt into 8 ounces of warm, bottled or distilled water. Fully submerge your piercing into the water and allow it to soak for 7-10 minutes. When finished, rinse thoroughly with clean water and pat dry with a clean paper towel.
With clean hands while you are in the shower, use a small pea sized amount of soap to gently lather around your piercing and the exposed jewelry. Do not twist or turn your jewelry or work the soap into the piercing during this process. Rinse your piercing thoroughly with clean water and pat dry with a clean paper towel.
After each time you eat, drink or smoke anything; rinse your mouth with a mild alcohol free mouth wash. Do not use mouth wash that is too harsh or contains alcohol as this may cause irritation.
What you should know
Everyones body heals differently, you might experience some of these things while your piercing is healing: Swelling, bleeding, bruising, or itching during the first few days. You might also see some whiteish to yellow discharge. All of these things are normal. You can use an icepack wrapped in a clean paper towel to help with swelling and discomfort.
Please remember to come back in 3-4 weeks for a check-up. Most piercings will need to be "downsized" where a piercer will insert a smaller ring or shorter barbell that fits more comfortably. While this second piece of jewelry will be an additional fee, your piercer will be happy to insert it at no additional cost.
