Care for Cartilage Piercing Infection

Cartilage PiercingA professional piercer must advise a person about proper piercing care. He must execute some precautionary steps while piercing. He must use sterilized instruments and wear clean gloves while piercing. Apart from these, a person who gets his ear pierced must follow the following steps to avoid cartilage infection.
  • Do not touch cartilage piercing with the naked hands. Dirty hands is the access point for bacteria to enter the piercing.
  • Use a disinfectant soap to wash the hands properly.
  • Never play with piercing jewelry. Fingering the piercing jewelry with dirty hands cause infection.
  • While putting on clothes, take proper care of piercing.
  • Use an antiseptic lotion to clean the piercing twice a day, till it heals completely. You can soak jewelry in alcohol solution for disinfecting it.
  • Never apply hydrogen peroxide, tea tree oil or alcohol directly on piercing.
  • Don’t change the jewelry frequently in the initial months.
  • Always keep your hair clean and do not keep the public telephone receiver on the ear directly.
