  • I don't know, but I doubt it is different than a lip or ear piercing. Maybe germier. peroxide maybe?

  • Just because she's a mom doesn't mean that she can't have piercings! What is she supposed to forget her identity and wear mom pants and get a minivan?! Jeez.

  • My dad owns a pirecing and tattoo shop and this is what they say to customers.
    Use a mild anit bacterial soap on the outside. The pump kind not the bar soap. The bar soap can habor bacteria. Do not use neosporn or peroxide anything like that. You can also use a little sea salt and water not to much cause you dont want to dry it out also they say take zinc or multi vitamin cause heals.
    Hope this helps!!!

  • yup saline soloution should work well for you. What is it we used to use, Bactine? And then they changed it to saline solution because the Bactine was drying out the skin, causing it to sometimes crack and bleed (open sores *obviously* are breeding ground for infection). You can make it yourself, as the other mamas said, out of sea salt and water. Clean it several times a day.
