Piercing infection - Causes, Treatment, Remedies


Fashion is constantly changing, different elements of the decoration of the human body appear and disappear. It became very cool to do piercing again now. Let’s remind that it is a skin puncture of different parts of a body (a navel, an ear, a nose, brows) with the further ornament. It all depends on what you really want and how far you can develop your imagination.

Everything would be if, if there were not some negative moments that we want to talk about right now. It will be about not the most pleasant thing such as: what if there were complications after carrying out such a procedure — it hurts or festering the puncture site? It should be emphasized that this is not a cosmetic procedure, but a surgical procedure. Therefore, sterility, disinfection and the rules of carrying for it are the main components of your further health.

But, if you are confronted with the fact that the piercing is suppurated for any reason, let’s try to help you. First we need to figure out what «suppuration» is. It is also called an abscess. This is a natural process, which usually lasts no longer than a couple of days. There should be no problems and suppuration will be fast enough with regular washing of the puncture site.


Several rules for treating piercings, which are suppurated:

  • You can’t treat the wound with hydrogen peroxide, brilliant green anesthetic, iodine, alcohol, cologne, saline solution, Vishnevsky ointment;
  • Multipurpose rescuers are chlorhexidine, miramistin, levomekol, tetracycline ointment. But remember that you can’t use levomekol until full healing, but only until the wound ceases to rot, because the rate of regeneration may decrease; And tetracycline ointment dries, but can be applied not everywhere;
  • If you start the treatment process, first rinse the wound and then apply the ointment not around, but on the wound itself. It is better to do this before bedtime with the application of a sterile bandage. It needs to be done about 5 times a day, then reduce as many times as it is healing;
  • Do not forget about personal hygiene;
  • Do not forget about vitamins. Use vitamin C (ascorbic acid), multivitamins and zinc-containing foods that accelerate the healing process of wounds.
  • But the most important recommendation still is to consult a doctor. A competent specialist only will be able to consult you and assign the funds that will really help you. This is the best way!

Change yourself! Be beautiful! Take care of your health only – it is the most valuable thing that we have!
