Good Things to Do:
Leave the piercing alone unless you are cleaning it. NO PLAYING
Take a multi-vitamin with zinc and vitamin C for faster healing.
Make sure your bedding is clean and changed frequently while healing.
Leave jewelry in at all times. Even old and well-healed piercings can shrink in a matter of minutes. If your jewelry must be temporarily removed (such as for a medical procedure), contact Haven Body Arts for help.
If you suspect you have an infection, contact your Piercer and we will advise you in what to do.
Don’t Do This:
Don’t use Bacitracin, Neosporin, Rubbing Alcohol, Peroxide, Hibiclens, or Betadine. These products will hinder healing and cause more harm than good!
Avoid submerging your piercings in dirty water, such as pools, lakes and hot-tubs. If you have to go in the water, make sure you cover your piercing with a breathable, non-water permeable wound sealant such as Tegaderm or Clean Seals (found at your local drugstore).
Avoid sleeping on your piercing during healing and any other undue stress.
NO PLAYING!!! NO TOUCHING!!! NO LICKING OR KISSING!!!
Don’t change out starter jewelry until piercing is fully healed unless otherwise advised by your piercer.
