Piercings are an innovative way to individualize yourself but can also be painful and require healing measures and time. Aftercare is a critical part of getting a piercing. If proper aftercare is not exercised, serious health risks can occur such as infection, swelling or inflammation. Since a piercing is an open wound, aftercare must also be very sanitary so that it heals correctly and as quickly as possible.
Once your piercing has been completed, aftercare comes into important play. Different piercings in different areas can require a bit more special treatment such as cartilage. You’ll want to clean your hands thoroughly with soap and water before handling your piercing. Twice a day, you’ll need to clean the piercing area with mild soap and water, rinse with a saline solution and clear it of any bits of crust that may have formed.
Oral piercings are slightly different because you won’t be washing with soap. H2Ocean’s Healing Rinse Arctic Ocean Mint was designed to help heal and protect new oral piercings without using harmful chemical solutions. This alcohol and fluoride free oral rinse is the only sea salt based oral rinse with enzymes naturally found in your saliva. The days of mixing a salt solution and the dreaded taste of these mixtures are over. H2Ocean’s oral rinse formulas are enriched with the ingredient xylitol which helps prevent dry mouth. It also helps to prevent strep from grouping and plaque from staining teeth. Rinsing with sea salt water has never been easier or more enjoyable.
H2Ocean’s healing rinse is also widely used in the medical community for many different uses. The solution helps to address sore throats, dry mouth, canker sores and bad breath. It can also be used for post dental work to maintain a healthy and clean mouth.
