How To Care Ear and Nose Piercing

How It Is Done

Getting a nose or ears pierced could be painful depending on the piercing instruments involved. Ear and nose piercings are done using a piercing gun which involves little pain, not more than a bug bite, during the process of the piercing, followed by an extended pain as an after effect which varies from person to person. Some professionals do the piercing by hand, they do not use any instrument, and they just use a stud with a sharp end and insert the end through the skin. They claim to know the right place in the ear and/or nostril that is suitable for a piercing, avoiding any injury or pain.

The Right Process of Getting It Done

Pain afterwards hardly exist, again this depends from person to person. Any kind of piercings should be done in winter. The first step to take is to avoid summers for piercings, as sweat and grime can cause infection. Next step is to keep your ears or nose clean before the procedure begins.

Which method or instrument you would use to get your piercing done is upto you. I should ask you to steer clear off piercing guns as they have a high risk of transmission of diseases. However, some modern professionals use a reusable piercing gun which has disposable cartridges, that reduces the risk of any communication of diseases.

The After-Care

After the piercing has been done, the after care is extremely important to avoid any kind of infections or irritation to the skin. Once again, cleanliness is vital. You should always wash your hands prior to any application or touch on the pierced areas. Prevent fiddling the stud or ring used for piercing for no reason.

Daily gently wash the ears or nose, front and back properly and rotate the stud or ring slowly, so that water cleans the opening, rotation also helps your skin adapt to the external ring and heal the opening. For ear piercings, do not remove the ring used for piercing before at least 6-8 weeks from the time of the piercing, to replace it with something different.

And for nose piercings you should leave it on for 8-12 weeks. In case the piercing bleeds or forms puss, leave it on for more number of days and clean the piercing twice a day with hydrogen peroxide on some cotton. Its antibacterial formula helps fight the germs and cleans the skin with no pain or irritation at all. It may hurt at first, however, they pain goes away eventually.Take care of your piercings in the steps given above and flaunt your piercing wearing any type of jewelry you want and have fun.
