I have an infection from a piercing, can I solve this at home?

Yes infection caused from piercing usually solves on its own when the following care is taken -

  • Keep the area of infection clean. This can be done with the application of hydrogen peroxide followed by an antiseptic ointment.
  • Remove any piece of jewelry from the pierced hole instantly at the sight of an infection.
  • In future always prefer piercing from a professional who uses sterilized equipments.
  • Avoid wearing artificial jewelry in the pierced area, instead go for real ones like gold or silver.
