Body Piercing Aftercare

Art is loose concept and every person has the right to see it as he wants. For somebody art should bring only pleasant feelings of beauty and spirit of the innocent world. For others art is everything that a human being creates with his imagination and gifts. Body piercing is also an art. Done properly it decorated the body and its rich history speaks for itself. Many civilizations and tribes have been experiencing body piercing for various reasons. African and Native American tribes practiced tongue and lip piercing. Egyptians pierced their noses and ears (it is proved by the found mummies with several piercings in ears and nose). The Ancient Roman pierced nipples and genitals and it was mentioned in Kama Sutra.
Nowadays more and more people go for body piercing. Today's youth embrace the piercing of the body and it is popular among people of different ages all over the world. Some may find piercing freaky but for most people it has already become attractive type of body decoration. But we should remember that piercing may also be the way to infect the body and it's important to start proper aftercare as soon as you get it. The risks of infection and irritation always present but if you (1) do the piercing in sterile trusted piercing shop by the professional and (2) follow all body piercing aftercare recommendations, everything will be great.
It is unadvisable to apply any creams, ointments and astringents on new piercing because you may consider it a wound. Semen and saliva as well as other bodily fluids should be kept away from the piercing to avoid developing of infection.
The piercing shouldn't be touched by anyone including you for the first few days.
You shouldn't take the starter jewelry until the piercing is completely healed. If you take it out earlier than inside healing processes are over, you may create a new wound that will be healing much longer once again.
The usage of petroleum jelly may lead to the growth of bacteria. Don't use it as well as you shouldn't use hydrogen peroxide or alcohol to avoid scarring.
Avoid any spicy food if you have pierced your lips or the tongue. If you chew tobacco or smoke, it's also better for you to stop at least the piercing is slightly healed.
Avoid submerging your piercing in water. Cover it with waterproof bandage if you need to stay in water for some time. Avoid contacts with sand, lotions, tanning oils and direct sunlight.
Drink less coffee and avoid drugs.
Don't use spray and cosmetics on and around new piercing.
And don't over clean it- it should be cleaned as many times as your piercer said.
The way you clean your piercing depends on its type but there are some common recommendations on cleaning. Use antiseptic lotion to wash your hands, use a cotton ball and warm water to wipe the dirt around the pierced area. In few days after the piercing procedure, you may rinse it with anti-bacterial soap water. Dry it well with a paper towel. After several weeks or months if you feel no pain on touch, you may rotate the piercing around gently. There are special piercing cleaning and healing solutions that will help the healing process run faster.
