- Always wash your hands before handling your new piercing. This needs to be done 3 times a day for at least 6 to 8 weeks.
- Avoid exposure to filth, septic, and/or unclean situations, bacteria and disease are everywhere.
- Use a sterile bandage when necessary.
- Avoid clothing that is too tight or rubs harshly on your new piercing. This can cause irritation, infection, and soreness; a sterile bandage can be used here as well.
