Piercing Care & Aftercare

Posted by Jessica Theys on 5/10/2013 to Body Jewelry

The worst thing to happen after getting a new piercing is getting an infection! The healing process for piercings is incredibly important- you can make sure to avoid infections by using only the best piercing aftercare products.

Piercing Aftercare

Cocobul Body Jewelry carries H2Ocean products- one of the top piercing aftercare brand names in the industry. H2Ocean Piercing Aftercare Spray is the top-of-the-line when it comes to piercing aftercare hygiene! Make sure you have a can of H2Ocean Piercing Aftercare Spray at the ready once you get a piercing. Apply H2Ocean Piercing Aftercare Spray on your new piercing every 3 to 4 hours- the enzymes will remain active, fighting off bad bacteria for 4 to 5 hours, which will keep infections from occurring. You want to use H2Ocean Piercing Aftercare Spray at least 3 times a day for the first two weeks after getting pierced. If used correctly, H2Ocean Piercing Aftercare Spray can guarantee a smooth healing process.

When getting pierced around the mouth and/or tongue (oral piercing), there are certain things you must try to avoid at all costs! Drinking alcohol and smoking must be avoided after getting any kind of oral piercing. Alcohol and smoke can cause increase the risk of infection, prolong the healing process, and can cause extreme irritation. You should also try to avoid certain types of foods for the first few weeks after getting an oral piercing. Avoid hot, spicy, sticky, hard, acidic, and dairy foods- these types of food can cause irritation, discomfort, and/or infection. You should also try to avoid drinking soda. You can get back to regular eating habits after swelling has gone down, which is generally 1 to 2 weeks after getting pierced.


Cocobul Body Jewelry also carries H2Ocean Mouthwash, available in Arctic Ocean and Lemon Ice flavors! H2Ocean Mouthwash is the first oral rinse to combine sea salt and natural enzymes to help cleanse your mouth, while benefitting your teeth and gums! H2Ocean Mouthwash is great for helping the healing process move along smoothly for any type of oral piercing, including tongue piercings, labret/monroe piercings, dimple piercings, etc.

Last, but not least- make sure that you do not change your body jewelry too soon! After your initial piercing, you must wear that first piece of body jewelry until the healing process has finished. Depending on the type of body piercing, healing times can vary, but to play it safe, 6 to 8 weeks should be enough time for your piercing to heal. If you change your body piercing jewelry too soon, you can cause infection, irritation, pain and even bleeding. Once your new piercing is healed, you can change your body piercing jewelry freely.
