You should consider the risk of rejection, which in comparison with other types of piercings increases. Because of the arrangement of the decoration under the skin, the body identifies it as a foreign body and begins to push it out. Right decoration selection and professional puncture performance are factors that reduce the likelihood of rejection. Basic rules of aftercare:
- Daily treatment with disinfectants.
- Protection against mechanical damage in contact with clothes, long hair and other objects, such as a comb and a body sponge.
- Refusal to bathe in open water, visit swimming pools and take hydromassage baths.
Do not drink alcoholic beverages that reduce concentration and have analgesic effects. Alcohol intoxication increases the risk of accidental puncture damage. Do not touch the piercings or move the jewelry until the puncture has fully healed. If you want to change the decoration, contact the piercer.
Skin diver is subject to rejection, which makes it necessary to carefully monitor the wound throughout the period of wearing the decoration. Signs of rejection include increased soreness and sensitivity in the puncture hole, displacement or too loose arrangement of the decoration, enlarged holes.
If there are signs of infection - redness and swelling of the skin, purulent secretions, an increase in body temperature, you should immediately consult a piercer or a doctor.
