Piercing Aftercare 

Aftercare is the most important thing if you want to avoid unwanted infections. When we get piercing, we generally cut and try to modify our body to wear jewelry in it.

It takes time to heal the wound completely. while in the healing period our body works really hard to heal and cure the wound. But that not always enough, some external factors also effects and can make the process slow and tough.

We should follow a regular cleaning and healing steps. This routine can increase the speed of your piercing healing process. Now the question is what we should do.

I generally recommend you to ask your piercing artist about your aftercare. As they are more aware of the type of piercing and your skin condition. But if in case you forgot asking, no need to worry.

It is really easy to take care of your new piercings. It only includes cleaning and avoiding a few things



Clean your piercing at least once a day or max twice Do not clean too much it may get dried and gives your pain
Use saline solution or Homemade sea salt solution for the cleaning process Don’t use Iodized or any other salt
At the shower, time use a mild soap to wash your piercing


Never use harsh soap or soap that contains alcohol
Dry your piercing after every wash Never let water or soap inside the pierced area
Keep your new piercing untouched Do not touch too much, it may get infections
Wear loose and comfortable dresses, if your piercing is in that area Avoid wearing tight dresses
Take a daily bath in your personal area or pool Public pools should be avoided

How to apply tea tree oil to piercing?

Before knowing the answer to this question you should know where you are going to apply it. This will work best for all types of surface piercings. You should apply Tea tree oil to your piercing to clean and stimulate the healing process.

But if you have a piercing infection, then it is necessary to treat it by using tea tree oil. As this oil works like magic in curing infections. But before application doesn’t forget to do the patch test. This will help you to ensure that your skin doesn’t have any allergy to this oil.

Dilute Tea Tree Oil

Dilution of concentrated Tea Tree oil is the first step of application. I never recommend applying pure concentrated oil directly to the skin. especially if your skin is dry or sensitive.

To dilute this oil you can add a few drops of water to it or you can add other carrier oil. I generally recommend diluting concentrated essential oil with the help of coconut oil.

Applying Tea Tree oil without diluting may result, redness, burning sensation even damaged skin. Try diluted oil to avoid all these problems.

you can apply this oil to your infected or uninfected piercing in two ways. First is to mix it with a salt solution. You can pour a few drops of tea tree oil into your saline solution.

Then clean your piercing as you usually do. If you are using it to oral piercing, make sure you don’t swallow it. And wash your mouth and the piercing area with water properly.

The second way to apply tea tree oil is to directly apply diluted oil to your piercing area. You should apply this oil after cleaning it with saline or sea salt solution. Don’t forget to wipe out excess oil after application.

Patch test

The patch test is a process of trying products before final application. You should do a patch test before trying any new skin products.

For testing take a cotton swab and dip it into the diluted oil mix. Apply it in a very small amount to the softer area of your skin. Like you can try it to your inside arms or leg areas.

you can patch test both diluted and undiluted oil. But make sure you are applying to a very small area and the quantity is also very small.

How to treat an infected ear piercing? What are the causes?

Treating Ear Piercing is very easy but before that let me explain the possible causes.

  • Getting pierced with a public piercing gun. This is the biggest reason for infection as in public places like the mall, piercers are unable to clean piercing guns properly. And the sterilization is also not possible, this increases the risk of getting infected.
  • lack of cleaning. You should cleat you piercing regularly at least once a day or maximum twice a day.  Skipping your cleaning routine may result in infection as the new wounds are more prone to infections.
  • Frequent touching. It is very important to clean your hands before touching your new piercing. Dirty hands can infect your piercing and can worsen your pain.

These are the three major causes of getting infections. You can prevent infections by simply keeping these three causes in your mind.

But if you are feeling that your piercing is infected you should start special care of it. Proper cleaning and applying antiseptic can also help you. But for better results, I recommend cleaning infected piercings with tea tree oil.

How to get rid of Nose piercing bump with tea tree oil?

Bump on the nose is very common after piercing. It looks dirty and is very painful too. But the bump on the nose is not always due to infections. sometimes crusts forms around the piercing and due to lack of cleaning it becomes dry hard.

crusts need to be clean regularly as it blocks the wound path. And can result in torn skin near the wound by getting harden.  The white or transparent discharge from the wound is normal as it shows our body is healing.

But the liquid oozing out of the wound get clotted around the wound and by the time gets harder. Mix a few drops of tea tree oil to the salt solution for cleaning crusts or infected piercing.

you can also directly apply diluted tea tree oil to the piercing using a cotton swab or a bud. If you are using your tea tree oil mix to the oral piercings, make sure to wash your mouth thoroughly with water after cleaning.

Tea Tree oil is rich in antiseptic, anti-fungal, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Which not only cleanse but also boost the healing process.
