How to Take Care of a Cartilage Piercing

Cartilage piercing is one of the oldest types of body piercings. In some cultures, cartilage piercing, just like we have in the nose and ears is carried out with some religious inclinations. Cartilage piercing can be done in different parts of the body, this includes the external ears on places such as the rook, tragus, and across the helix. It can also be done on the nose, belly button, septum and many other areas.

Cartilage piercing is a complex procedure that requires a lot of expertise and experience. Like any other type of body piercing, cartilage piercing carries with it a lot of risks that include scarring and chances of getting infections. It is important to know that once you have this procedure done that you use proper piercing aftercare to minimize chances of risking infections.

Once you’ve decided to get your cartilage pierced it is important to know how to take care of a cartilage piercing. First things first, ask your piercer to use a sterilized needle, not a gun. In most cases when the piercer uses a gun, the gun uses a lot of force to push the earring through this ends up causing unnecessary damage to the ear tissues that in turn increase chances of getting infections or even causing large wounds around the pierced area. With the use of a sterilized needle, the tool works by making a small incision into the ear tissues that leaves minimal damage to the ear.

For a fresh piercing, always wash with a mild antibacterial soap and water. Avoid washing or rubbing it with alcohol and peroxide. The use of these harsh chemicals on the site of the piercing is likely to cause a drying effect that will damage your skin, causing cracks that leave your wound open or even bleeding.

The best product on the market today to take care of and heal your piercing is H2Ocean’s Piercing Aftercare Spray. This industry-leading product is a combination of sea salt and lysozyme that creates an optimal solution that is effective in speeding up the healing process. It also helps prevent the formation of any severe scabbing or gross crust that may appear and allows for the movement of liquid growth factors, these factors are responsible for the migration of cells into the wounded place that stimulates growth and healing.

Always remember that after you have had your piercing, don’t touch or rotate it. Touching the pierced part with dirty hands may infect the wound with bacteria or may potentially increase germs to the area. If you absolutely have to turn your earring after the piercing, then try and do it when the area is wet.

To avoid infection during the healing process, make sure that your clothing and sheets are clean, always keep your hair away from the piercing in case of ear piercing. If your piercing is bothering you don’t panic, look for professional help if you notice any excessive swellings, redness, or radiating heat. Those can be signs that something is wrong. Immediately contact your physician or go to a clinic so that they can prescribe you with the proper medication. Happy piercing!
