There are a few things you should do after getting a piercing, in order to ensure the piercing heals properly and does not become infected.
First and foremost, make sure to clean the piercing site with antibacterial soap and warm water at least once a day, using a gentle circular motion. Be sure to rinse off the soap completely, and be sure to avoid scrubbing the site.
If the piercing is in a difficult to reach place, you may want to try using a q-tip to clean the area and then apply a topical ointment, such as Neosporin, to the area. If the piercing is near the eye, you should consult with your doctor before applying any ointments or creams.
If you experience any discomfort, swelling, redness, or discharge from the piercing, you should see a doctor as soon as possible. Infected piercings can cause serious medical problems, and improper healing can result in lost jewelry
