The Scrotum or Hafada piercing takes 4 to 6 months to heal. Such piercings can be made at any place on the scrotum. However, if the piercing is made in a fold of loose skin that faces outward, it tends to be more successful. Care should be taken to ensure that the piercing does not perforate the testicle sac, because in this case, a very serious infection might be caused. Such piercings are slow in healing. Tension is created at the area because of the expansion and contraction of the piercing. Factors such as perspiration, low or no circulation of air as well as friction from the wearer’s clothes, thighs and penis lead to irritation of the scrotum piercings. In certain cases, an area of tender and irritated tissue is formed around the piercing. To speed up the process of healing, the piercing should be kept as dry as possible and loose clothing should be used which would allow sufficient air circulation. The irritation of the tissue tends to subside as the piercing heals. Captive bead rings having a gauge of 10 to 14 and a diameter of 9/16 to 11/16 inches is considered to be ideal for initial usage. The diameter of the ring should exceed the width of the piercing by at least 1/4 inch. Rings that are very small would lead to contraction of the piercing, migration and scarring. Scrotum piercings tend to swell up in the initial weeks and so, the ring should be large so that the swelling can be accommodated.
