This is the aftercare suggested after Inverness piercing. You just had your ears pierced, now what? Use these tips to help you through the healing period. Earlobe Piercing: Leave the piercing earrings in for 6 weeks
Cartilage Piercings: Leave the piercing earrings in for 12 weeks CLEAN HANDS
Always be sure to wash your hands thoroughly before touching your ears or earrings.
Gently slide your earring back and forth while cleaning to help the solution reach inside your piercing.
TURN TURN TURN
Gently rotate your piercing earrings at least 3x’s a day, ideally after you have applied your Inverness Ear Care Solution.
Be extra careful not to catch your piercing earring when brushing your hair.
Avoid irritating your piercing with products such as hair spray, shampoo, soap, perfume or cosmetics. After using any of these, clean your piercing with your Inverness Ear Care Solution.
WARM WEATHER TIP
Protect your piercing from the sun by wearing a wide-brimmed hat. Avoid getting sunscreen in your piercing. If you do, rinse with clean water and reapply your Inverness Ear Care Solution.
Athletes: before you get pierced, ask if you are permitted to protect a new piercing with a plaster or sports tape during games and practice. If not, plan to have your ears pierced in the off-season.
REMEMBER: Pain, redness and swelling are not a normal result of ear piercing and can lead to infection. Should pain, redness or swelling appear any time after 24 hours after the piercing, remove the earring and see your physician immediately. This is extremely urgent with cartilage piercing, as very serious infections and/or complications can result.
