Saline Soaks.
by: Stacie

When you get your tragus pierced, as well as your nose, your piercer will tell you to clean it on a regular basis until completely healed(cartilage piercing as such can actually take up to a year). Usually they tell you three to six months, so I would personally do the twice a day wash with your antibacterial soap, and on your last wash for the night, do your saline soak. You don't have to do it every night unless it's a brand new piercing. Once your piercing is at the three month mark, you could possibly cut down to the saline soaks to 3 times a week, if even that. The older your piercing gets, the less saline washes :) If you EVERRRR notice any sort of bump next to your piercing(inside or out), start your saline soaks again, but do a compress with a cotton ball(of course you'll be using hot sea salt water). Happy day! :)
