My piercing is red and seems to be infected ... what can I do?
First, make sure that you are NOT using the non-recommended product to clean your piercing such as; Bactine®, alcohol, or Neosporin® Hibiclense® etc.. Second, make sure that you are only using a mild soap and or non-iodized sea salt approved by your piercer to clean your piercing. Third, make sure you are not over cleaning your piercing. All these actions can cause your piercing to mimic an infection such as make it red, inflamed, and painful. Fourth, make sure you have the right jewelry in your piercing. You may have a defective piece of jewelry or a slight allergic reaction to your jewelry. Other jewelry options are available such as titanium or niobium. If you are having problems or think you are having a problem please consult your piercer.
