Nose piercing infection
by: Admin

# Never touch your piercing if you haven't washed your hands first.
# Determine if you are having an allergic reaction to the jewelry. If the metal doesn't suit your skin, remove it.
# To keep the piercing clean, apply a thin coat of antiseptic ointment to the area-before sleep and before you go out.
# If you notice pus, wait until the drainage slows down. Then you can move the piercing just a little, once every week. If you move it more often then you will aggravate the nose piercing infection.

It take 2 to 6 months to heal depends on your body reaction to the piercing.Use a sterile saline solution or one with sea salts, applied with a gauze pad or cotton ball, to cleanse your piercing daily. Many people enjoy the use of lavender essential oil as nose piercing care and insist that it reduces scar tissue. It will lubricate your piercing and prevent its tightening.First you must dilute it by blending 10 drops of lavender oil with 15 ml grape seed or sweet almond oil. Apply a drop to the piercing using a cotton ball or swab, remove excess oil, and then move the jewelry back and forth in the piercing.
