Upon Going Home:
- Always wash your hands before touching your earrings.
- Keep hairspray, soap and shampoo away from your ear
- Take over-the-counter Tylenol® or ibuprofen to help with any discomfort the night of the piercing..
For the Next Month:
Clean your earrings two to three times per day with gauze soaked in peroxide. Move your earrings back and forth while you’re cleaning. You will need to do this for the next month, and then as needed.
These earrings will need to stay in for the next month. You may change them after a month, but you must wear some sort of earring during the day or at night for the following month to prevent the hole from closing.
When removing your earrings for the first time, make sure they are mobile within the ear before removing. If you’re having difficulty replacing an earring, use a triple antibiotic ointment to help ease the earring through the hole.
The earrings dispensed by our office are 24-karat, gold-plated and hypoallergenic. If you experience irritation with other earrings, switch back to your original earrings. If you lose an earring, it can be replaced by our office for a small fee. Call with any questions or concerns.
If redness, irritation, itching, soreness, oozing and/or any disorder of the ear occurs, please call our office.
