Some Questions to Review:

Remember cleaning is for 6 to 8 weeks

and Cartilage is 6 to 9 months,

twice a day with two different procedures,

then scaling down to one time a day in the bath or shower with soap and water

or sea salt solution for the next year and sometimes even much longer.


Have you been diligently cleaning the Ear Piercing daily for the proper time frame?


Did you remember that if you move an Earring without soaking it free,

it can actually damage or tear healing tissue and make a buildup?

Aftercare, Procedure number one gets soaked and compressed and moved while after care procedure number two does not.


Did you make sure that the backing is not on too tight?


Have you changed Earrings to another style from your original?

If you are certain that the aftercare procedures have been diligent,

then other possibilities should be evaluated.

Occasionally, it may be discovered that the issue being experienced

may be the outcome from none of these conditions mentioned.

Some piercing related issues experienced may be mysterious.

Problematic piercing can miraculously heal with simple solutions.

Some aftercare related piercing issues require medical attention.

The Most Common Causes of bumps, blisters, bubbles and associated piercing eruptions

are usually from Improper, Irregular, Inconsistent or Insufficient Aftercare cleaning procedures such as:


Make sure that the backing is on the notch inscribed on the earring post.

Ever so slightly before the notch in most cases can be fine as long as the back tip of the post

is not protruding beyond the earring backing.


Sometimes after diligently and efficiently cleaning a piercing, a metal reaction can present issues. First we may start with changing to a titanium back. If still no quick response, next try changing to a titanium post and then go from there.

Be sure to identify if the current Earring style being worn is the original style selected for Piercing Earrings Services.


Yes, with nails looking beautiful and long, this can sometimes be a huge hindrance

when cleaning the back of the piercing.

 In order for proper the proper compression technique to be effective,

it is very important that the finger nails be short enough

so that you’re able to successfully compress the skin that is closest around to the back of the earring.

This backing of the ear area can hold dead cell waste and other debris buildup

which can get missed or untouched during cleaning procedures

because of the inability to compress the ear because of the long nails.

After the soaking procedure,

the compression procedure must be close enough to the post and piercing site

to ensure that the dead cell waste is being worked out of the ear piercing

and or cartilage and skin fusion during the aftercare cleaning procedure.

Now that you've learned about improper, Irregular, Inconsistent or Insufficient Aftercare cleaning procedures and possible irritations,

Here is a Powerful Solution for short term use only.

For conditions that show no improvement, plateau or recycle
