Essential Healing Tips for Ear Piercing at H.Samuel

AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS

It is vital that you follow ALL of the Aftercare Instructions to ensure proper healing of your newly pierced ears. Persistent redness or swelling indicates an infection or that your body cannot tolerate a foreign object. Should any of these conditions exist 24 hours after your piercing, please see your doctor immediately.

EARLOBE: Leave the piercing earrings in for SIX WEEKS

DURING THE HEALING PERIOD (AS DEFINED ABOVE):

1. Always cleanse hands prior to touching your ears.

2. Cleanse both sides of the pierced area at least 3 times daily using a clean cotton swab soaked with Ear Care Solution.

3. Gently ROTATE your earrings to prevent them adhering to the ear.

4. Avoid irritating your piercing with products such as hair spray, shampoo, soap, perfume or cosmetics. After using any of these, clean your piercing with your Ear Care Solution.

5. Take extra care when removing clothing over the head or brushing hair, so that earrings don’t get caught. Exercise care when participating in sports or rough play.

6. After cleaning & before bed, always check to make sure that your earring back is fastened securely.

AFTER HEALING PERIOD:

For the first six months, do not go longer than 24 hours without earrings to prevent the hole from closing.

PIERCING CONCERNS:

In many cases, returning to proper aftercare procedures will clear up an irritation that develops in the earlobe. Check to see if earrings are too tight. Loosen, if necessary, and continue cleansing with Ear Care Solution three times a day.

If the problem continues, SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY.

PLEASE NOTE:

PAIN, REDNESS AND SWELLING ARE NOT A NORMAL RESULT OF EAR PIERCING AND CAN LEAD TO INFECTION. SHOULD PAIN, REDNESS OR SWELLING APPEAR ANY TIME MORE THAN 24 HOURS AFTER THE PIERCING, SEE YOUR DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY.
