Whether you have a septum piercing, a nose piercing or any other type of piercing, it’s important to know how to get it closed after it’s been done. Here are a few tips that will help you do that.
Septum piercings heal faster than nasal piercings
Unlike nasal piercings, septum piercings heal faster, but they can also take longer. They are also less likely than other piercings to become infected. However, there are still risks.
To avoid infection, septum piercings must be properly cared for. If you are unsure of how to care for your piercing, talk to your piercer.
To clean a septum piercing, you can wash it with warm salt water, or a solution of non-iodized sea salt. You should wash it two times a day. Avoid using alcohol or soap. A saline solution spray can be used.
Avoid touching the piercing. If you are not sure, call your piercer or doctor. Infections can cause pain, redness, and swelling. You should avoid picking at the scabs, which can also cause infections.
Avoid submerging your septum-piercing device in water. This can delay the healing process.
If your piercings are not properly cleaned, infection can also occur. Avoid using antibacterial ointments for piercings.
You should also avoid using moisturizers or soaps. Using thick creams or alcohol can also cause irritation. Avoid hot tubs and baths as they can be breeding grounds for bacteria.
Your nose should be cleaned regularly. Wash your hands with non-perfume soap before touching your nose. You can also press a cotton ball with warm salt water on the piercing for a minute.
You should also avoid touching the piercing if it is painful. If you are experiencing pain, call your piercer. They can provide more information.
Avoid using thick creams or moisturizers to your septum piercing. These products can also cause irritation to the piercing. You can also use a saline spray to clean the piercing.
You can also avoid jewelry that moves. Your piercer can adjust your piercing if it moves. It is also possible to turn your piercing without increasing your risk of infection.
Although septum piercings don’t usually cause pain, you should avoid pulling on the piercing. If your piercing is pulled, it will cause irritation and pain. If you pull it too much, you may also tear the skin under the piercing.
L-shape prong vs twist prong
It is important to choose between an L-shape prong and a twist prong for nose perforations. An L-shape prong is more secure and easier to insert, while a twister will give you a curvaceous appearance.
L-shape nose rings are typically designed with a 90-degree bend in the post, so that it is easier to insert. This type of piercing requires more effort than the twister type, but it will also provide greater security once the ring is inserted.
The twister stud is the most common starter jewelry. It is a simple design, made of high-quality metals. The prong is placed in the piercing and twists into place along the curve.
It can be difficult for L-shaped studs to fit in smaller nostrils so you might want to choose a more traditional stud. Faux hoop is another option. It has a hook and bead that folds into the L-shaped piercing. This is a great option for those who want to play with the placement of their own stud.
The twister stud is a good choice for septum-piercings. As it heals, the hoop will curve. This is one of the reasons why they are considered the most effective type of starter jewelry.
The twister stud is made of a thinner gauge of metal than the L-shape stud, but it is still thicker than the standard 18-gauge earring. This makes it easier to push the jewelry in but can cause more tissue damage if forced in too far.
The L-shape stud contains a smaller gem than the twister stud. The diamond is larger and sparkles more. The diamond is set in a prong, which allows more light to pass through.
You should consider your lifestyle when choosing the best L-shape Stud for your Piercing. If you have an active lifestyle, you may want to opt for the Alluring Body nose screw. These are inserted through the piercing and are threaded to ensure security.
Avoid touching the pierced hole after you take out the jewelry
Whether you have just gotten your first piercing or you are already a veteran, there are some things you should avoid doing after you take out the jewelry. This will help prevent infection and keep your piercing clean.
The most important rule of thumb when it comes to piercings is to avoid touching the pierced hole. This is because bacteria can be introduced into the wound by your fingers, and it can cause a lot of irritation and discomfort.
The second rule of thumb is to avoid exposing the piercing to water. This can make the healing process take longer. You are at risk of getting sick if you swim in public water bodies.
The third rule is to wash your hands. The reason is simple: bacteria can be transferred to the wound if your hands touch it with dirty hands. And if you don’t clean it properly, the bacteria can remain there, and cause a lot of pain and discomfort.
It is also a good idea to take multivitamins and zinc supplements. These can improve your healing abilities.
You can also clean your piercings with a mild, unscented glycerine shampoo. This can be rinsed away with a paper towel or clean gauze. You can also use a q-tip to clean the jewelry around the piercing.
The piercing may be in an area that is vulnerable, such as your ears and mouth. If the area around the piercing becomes red and itchy, you should be careful. An infection could cause the reddening. If the infection is severe you should consult your doctor.
The same rule of thumb goes for piercings in your hair. You can wash your hair after a shower but dry it well. It may surprise you to discover that your hair has bacteria from the previous day. It also holds onto any shampoo or conditioner that you have on it.
It is also a good idea to not wear jewelry or make-up on your piercings. You might also avoid wet hair when you go to bed.
Putting a nose piercing back in place after surgery
Putting a nose piercing back in place after surgery can be frustrating. The time required to heal can vary greatly, depending on the type of piercing. To ensure that healing continues smoothly, it is important to follow the aftercare guidelines.
Clean the wound before you begin any nose piercing care. Using a saline solution and a cotton ball, clean both sides of the piercing. This will remove any crusting or debris. You can purchase saline solution at a drugstore, or you can make your own.
It is important to clean the piercing at least three times daily. Never use hydrogen peroxide, or any antibiotic ointment on your piercing. Instead, use sterile saline solutions. You can also clean the piercing with a cotton bud that has been soaked in saline.
After you have cleaned your nose piercing, you can apply a small amount of tea tree oil. This will protect the wound from infection.
You can apply a saline solution to the nose piercing every day. Make sure you clean the jewelry properly, too. You should not forcefully insert the ring into the hole. If you force the jewelry into the piercing, you can damage the piercing.
If the piercing doesn’t heal, contact your doctor. You might need to change your jewelry or have the piercing taken out.
Avoid using sun tan lotions or moisturizers on your nose piercings. Hypertrophic scarring can result.
For more information on caring for your nose piercings, contact your doctor. You can also contact your local piercer for tips.
You should also not change your jewelry too frequently. This can slow down the healing process and can cause damage to your fistula.
The final stage of healing occurs about a year after the initial piercing. You should start to notice a decrease in swelling and discharge. You may want to change your jewelry again, if you are still noticing a change in the piercing.
After putting a nose piercing back in, you should follow good hygiene practices, eat a healthy diet, and sleep well. These habits will speed up the healing process of your nose.
