How to I clean my nipple piercing?

A: When it comes to cleaning your nipple piercing, you want to make sure that you are using the right products. A non-iodized sea salt solution will help reduce inflammation, redness, and swelling while it also fights off infection. You can make your own sea salt solution just make sure to dissolve the salt completely before applying it to your tragus piercing. You can do this by adding non- iodized sea salt to boiling water that has since cooled. Additionally, you can use a mild soap when showering. A saline solution from the drugstore is also a great option. 

You should never use alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, or ointments on your piercing as they can irritate the skin and they can damage the piercing jewelry. Additionally, avoid touching the area too much as this can lead to infection.
