After having a piercing, it is important to keep the area clean and dry.

You may be advised to gently clean the area with a saline solution. However, the piercing should not be over cleaned as it can irritate the skin and delay healing.

Using a saline solution or any other watery substance (such as alcohol solutions) involves fiddling with the piercing and getting it wet, so it’s usually best to avoid using them for at least the first three days after the piercing is carried out. Keeping the piercing dry is more important.

If you have an ear or facial piercing, having baths rather than showers will help to keep the piercing dry. Lower body piercings are harder to keep dry, so it may be best to sponge clean your body for the first three days, avoiding the pierced area.

Wash your hands with warm water and antibacterial soap and dry them with a disposable towel before touching or washing your piercing.

Ensure that any clothing and bedding that may come into contact with the area around the piercing is clean.
