 EAR PIERCING FOR ALL AGES

Whats That Bump?

For consistency and reference, 
See link included below for the most current In-Studio aftercare consultation.

Please make sure to read through and follow the directions in your aftercare sheet

that was provided during your in studio visit.

It is important to understand the differences from irritations and infections

and the Normal indications of a new piercing.

Welcome to the Problematic Ear Piercing Aftercare Program

As mentioned during the in studio consultation,

These conditions can be typically from improper, irregular, inconstant, insufficient

or other aftercare techniques including moving the piercing when it has not been

completely soaked free and or failing to sufficiently compress the backside of the piercing.

These conditions mentioned can accumulate especially in the back of a piercing and form of a sack,

blister, or a pimple, and can look filled or erupt with fluid that can be reddish, whitish,

yellowish and sometimes greenish.

The surrounding tissue can appear as a raised or an elongated red or dark purple bump.

Soaking the ear piercing site which entails actually soaking the piercing

and not just applying drops onto the ear piercing

must all be to specifications in order to ensure the proper aftercare techniques

are performed to achieve the most effective aftercare success.

Similar conditions to those pictured above have be observed by mistakenly

just using a swab or cotton tip during aftercare cleaning procedures.

 A swab is not efficient for aftercare cleaning procedures.

The Tearing of tissue and Dead cell waste can build up and look exhibit signs mentioned.

It is very important to remove Dead cell waste, fluids, debris, buildup or crust out and away from the piercing by diligently and thoroughly following both aftercare cleaning procedures.


The Most Common Causes are Improper, Irregular, Inconsistent or Insufficient

Aftercare cleaning procedures such as:

Moving, rotating or tearing a dry or insufficiently soaked piercing.

Improper or lack of sufficient compressions technique.

Discontinuing aftercare procedures too soon.

Infrequent or too much aftercare cleaning with over use of product.

Failure to perform long term simple daily aftercare procedure as a preventive.

Changing or switching out the jewelry too soon.

Reactive conditions from certain types of jewelry metals.


If you are certain about diligent cleaning and proper aftercare techniques, then other possibilities should be be re-examined. 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 experiences require medical attention.

Go ahead and try the Emergensea Solution three times a day, for three days.

After the first few applications,

Look for some type of positive response in the next several hours or days.

LONG NAILS?

Yes, with nails looking beautiful and long,

this can often be a hindrance when cleaning the back of the piercing.

It is important for proper compressions to be effective that finger nails be short

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

This area can hold dead cell waste and other debris buildup.

After the soaking procedure, The compression technique must be close enough to

the post or ring of piercing site to ensure that the dead cell waste is being worked out of the

Ear Piercing during the aftercare cleaning procedure.

METAL REACTIONS:

Sometimes after diligently cleaning a metal reaction can be the culprit. First we may start with changing to a titanium back then if still no Quick response we try changing to a titanium post and then go from there. Please let me know if the current jewelry style being worn is the original piercing jewelry.

TOO MUCH CLEANING:

Too much of any Aftercare procedures for certain individuals can be an issue.

This condition is not super common but can present an issue when it does occurs.

Diligent cleaning is important for the next 6 to 8 weeks

and then make sure to clean the piercing one time daily for the next several years.

TOO TIGHT BACKING:

Make sure that the backing is on the post correctly in it’s proper position.

Which is on the notch inscribed on the post.

NO IMPROVEMENT:

In the course of the next several hours or days your piercing should exhibit some type of positive improvement. An ear piercing worsening,

or exhibiting little or no sign of improvement may be reassessed for further suggestions.

PHYSICIAN:

If conditions worsen or or you feel that you may need to see a physician for advice please do so.
A cream or ointment topical may be prescribed.
Let’s still keep in contact because a topical is not always the complete best solution
for replacing long term aftercare cleaning procedures needed for a successfully healed piercing.

The Best Preventive: Diligently follow the basic aftercare instructions and procedures

suggested in the Aftercare Consultation video, demo and instruction sheet.

Blisters, Bumps & Bubbles.

A clean cloth or tissues are needed for an effective compression technique.


Emergensea Compressions Procedure:

1. Always wash your hand thoroughly before and after cleaning or handling a any piercing

Tip: Aftercare procedures can efficiently and effectively be streamlined by using a generous amount of warm running water from the faucet by thoroughly soaking and flushing out any piercing,

4. Next flush or irrigate the piercing with a prepared Self-Made Sea Salt Solution

which can be applied from an applicator bottle or generously with clean cloth.

Standard Self-Made Sea Salt Solution Recipe for Daily Aftercare Procedures:

Apply the compression motions to the backside and around the jewelry and piercing site. With the compression motions, attempt to drain the filled blister, bump, bubble or remove any dead cell waste by compressing out and flushing the fluids or debris away.
