Got my nose pierced last week, got hit in the face today, the piercing was bloody and scabbed, but I cleaned up. Anything to help the healing process?

Neosporin spray works great

H2ocean spray. Vitamins clean it with antibacterial dial soap. Make sure your cleaning it as directed by your piercer. If you have any issues your piercer can always recommend the best solutions. I wouldn't advise taking it out until its completely healed because if your nose ripped any or if any infection has gotten into it due to the injury the infection can seal in the nose an without the opening it will have no way to drain. I've been a piercer for a few years but travis @ everlasting impressions on Morgan ave is wonderful an very good with his craft he's always lead me in the right direction an will usually help you even if he didn't pierce me. Just make sure you tip him for his time. :) good luck

An pls do not put neosporin on it. Or alcohol,peroxide. All of that will irritate it. Soap water, an the h20cean spray is your best bet. You can purchase h20cean at everlasting impressions for like 5-8 bucks if they still carry it

If you don't want to spend a lot..pure sea salt is pretty cheap..I used it on my nose piercing..just take 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and warm purified water and use a cotton ball or q-tip..make sure it's pure sea salt though

If its not pure sea salt will it hurt it?

I'm having the hardest time resisting picking ><

I know it's bad it just feels like its dirty or something. Or like when I'm cleaning it its not actually getting clean because its all scabbed up.

Take a shower the steam will help soften the tissue, an make it easier to clean. Its normal to have a crust like substance on or around the piercing. That's your bodies way of healing. Picking it WILL CAUSE an infection. If you must get them off clean it properly. By pulling that off you can tear the skin which will cause scar tissue. Scar tissue can an will cause keloids(sp?) Google them if you don't know what they are. Believe me you don't want that growing off your nose. Pls go see a professional if you are having so many issues. No offense to any poster but advice on topix can be misleading, an alot of ppl who have received piercing consider themselves experts bc. Theyve been through the process i would rather see a professional than get advice fRom someone who could be misinformed an have it effect my health or my face good luck :)

When you change your piercing, don't put the kind that have a little ball at the end unless you plan to change it out often. The post is thinner than the end and your piercing will grow around it and you won't be able to remove it. I learned the hard way... Had to cut it out. Was not a fun process.

I know what you mean, I didn't have to cut mine out though
But as far as the salt goes it has to be pure sea salt because iodized Table Salt contains Iodine, which hinders healing. It is really harsh for something that is in the process of healing. It kills bacteria, but like alcohol or peroxide, it also kills of skin cells that are needed to form new tissue in your piercing, causing prolonged healing time, if it heals at all.

Never use neo on any type of new piercing or peroxide or rubbing alcohol it can cause it to migrate and it can make it take ten times longer to heal use sea salt diluted in warm water it works the best
