Ear Piercing care

Hi there! I had my ears pierced this afternoon, one sa bandang taas ng ear, and another sa tabi ng usual piercings (sa bandang baba ng ear, kung ano man tawag dun hehe). Sa bilihan lang ng earrings, using a piercing gun. When I asked how I was to take care of the piercings, I was told to just rub or put baby oil on the areas before and after I take a bath.

Eh nag-search ako ngayon sa Google, parang hindi naman 'yung baby oil ang recommended care talaga. Merong mga antiseptic na sinasabi, but I have none of those.

Any of you have an idea kung paano ko alagaan/linisin/whatever 'yung piercings ko without resoting to those antiseptic thingies? How long before mag-heal ba usually ang ear piercings? I was just a baby when I first had my ears pierced kaya siyempre 'di ko na maalala. Takot lang ako, baka ma-infect kasi. Thanks so much!!! :D

  • 2 weeks at least. baby oil works and you just keep twirling the earring sa ear mo para it wont stick to the skin. kase ear piercing is sugat lang tapos diba when you have a sugat it heals by producing more cells to become.. new skin. hahaha parang ganon d ko maexplain. basta twirl it lang para d sha mag stick and if takot ka, lagay ka alcohol lagi para mas malinis before baby oil. but medyo masakit. hahaha. the antiseptics lang is for the pus cases na.

    im not a doctor pero i have 5 piercings in my ear and one on my bellybutton. kaya i know how to take care. hahaha yun sa bellybutton ko tho wala na i had it closed but same process. hope i helped!
  • I had extra piercings nearly a year ago. You know, something rebellious to do lang, pero wala na now. Like what Prinsesa said, just keep twirling it around. I like doing that dati kasi it tickles :D Always, always keep it clean and mag-ingat when you sleep kasi baka matamaan, masakit yan. Oh, madali lang yan maheheal pero it's recommended not to take your studs off too soon. A big no no.

    Hey Prinsesa... tell me naman about your belly button piercing. I wanna have one sana eh.
  • hindi ba mas di gagaling ang sugat if you keep on twirling it around?
  • sa totoo lang, nung nag pa ear pierce ako sa cartilage, wala akong ibang nilagay.. lolz..

    pinabayaan ko lang.. though nagkasugat saken, kasi inalis ng pinsan ko eh, pinalitan ng ibang hikaw.. lolz..

    Dahan-dahan lang dapat. It's so that hindi siya magstistick, like what we mentioned na.
  • Thanks sa mga tips ninyo, people. :D Iniikot-ikot ko na nga 'yung studs, parang turnilyo, mwehehe! Pero napapadami yata lagay ko ng baby oil: pag-gising ko kaninang umaga, oily pati buhok ko, nyak.

    Para ngang gusto ko pa ulit magpa-pierce pa... hmm...

    Tapos, puro chandelier earrings kaya ilagay ko dito? Harhar! Astigidig!!! :lol:
  • ^ chandelier sa cartilage? lolz.. ayus yun! ahaha :D
  • bakit baby oil? I had my ears pierced 2 years ago, and the doctor (pediatrician) told me to use alcohol :shrug:

    ^ang alam ko hindi dapat alcohol... saline solution daw sabi ng mga kaibigan ko. Pero hindi ako doktor ha! :umbrella:


    :rpflag:
  • It's been almost a week now. 'Yung piercing ko sa lobe, walang prob. No pain at all. Pero medyo masakit pa din 'yung sa cartilage. When I twirled the stud this morning, medyo masakit siya! Nag-stick na nga yata sa skin. :(

    Used baby oil a while ago. Easier na siya i-twirl, although sensitive pa din.

    Mawawala kaya 'tong sakit na 'to? Or possible na na-infect na siya or nagsugat? :confused3:
  • I don't know, because my piercings actually didn't last that long. Tinatanggal ko kasi eh, and minsan I find it too masakit to put back the stud. But siguro naman after a few months wala na yang sakit.
  • talagang matagal maghilom ang pierce sa cartilage.. ako nga siguro mga 2 months? ewan ko ha, para na nga ring na infect eh.. pero di ko tinanggal. kasi diba, sayang naman ang hirap ko. lolz. i mean yung sakit na dinanas ko. nyahaha. pero i clean it with oil and cotton buds. basta, ang tip ko lang sayo.. wag na wag mong tatanggalin hangga't fresh pa. or you might regret it. hehe. :D
  • Correct! Like me, I'm regretting it. It's gonna be a year na sana, kung di ko yun tinanggal. Stupid school rules!
  • hehe karenski, i think you worry too much. :) you'll be fine, promise! just keep on twirling and applying baby oil or/and alcohol.

    i have 2 piercings on each lobe. i'm thinking of getting the top part of my ears pierced, kaso medyo nag-aalangan ako. parang sobrang sakit eh. :glee:
  • pretty_patty - haha, samin din eh. bawal ang maraming pierce sa ears. but i got through HS while i got my cartilage pierced! ahaha. nilulugay ko lang yung buhok ko. ahaha. pero actually alam ng principal namin na may piercing ako dun, hehe. tight lang kami kaya oks lang! ahaha :D

    pagan - yeah masakit. i tell you. haha. lalo na kapag baril ang gamit? diba yun ang gamit kapag sa lobe? hehe. oo masakit. but bearable naman. and yun nga lang kapag tutulog ka, dapat sa kabilang side kung san walang pierce. kasi masakit kapag nasasagi. :D
  • babygurl -- lalo na kapag baril ang gamit? you mean there's another way of piercing ears?? pano? gagamitan mo manually ng karayom? yikes! :eeek: hehe! naku, lalo naman ata akong natakot magpabutas sa cartilage.
  • ^^ no, i mean yeah baril nga ang gamit sa pag pierce sa cartilage. ehehe. pero may iba ata, manually, karayom. hehe. kasi may friend ako ganun eh. sila sila lang ata ng pinsan niya ang nagbutas. lolz
  • talagang matagal maghilom ang pierce sa cartilage.. ako nga siguro mga 2 months? ewan ko ha, para na nga ring na infect eh.. pero di ko tinanggal. kasi diba, sayang naman ang hirap ko. lolz. i mean yung sakit na dinanas ko. nyahaha. pero i clean it with oil and cotton buds. basta, ang tip ko lang sayo.. wag na wag mong tatanggalin hangga't fresh pa. or you might regret it. hehe. :D


    ako nga 4 months na medyo sumasakit pa minsan. pano ba naman ala pa atang 1 month eh tinanggal ko na ang stud ko at pinalitan ng ibang stud. tapos halos every other day tinatanggal ko sya para linisin kaya ayun 4 months na d pa rin sya gumagaling :D

    i dont know sa iba but when i got my helix pierced hindi talaga sya masakit. parang...wala lang! try mo...
  • Thanks for the added info, people. :D

    Twirl pa din ako ng twirl ng studs ko. Medyo hindi na ganun kasakit 'yung sa taas (so, it's called helix pala?)... 'yung sa lobe, deadma, haha! Tapos, 'yun nga... baby oil na lang din ginagamit ko. 'Di ko na alam kung ano panlinis eh. 'Di pa din siya healed though. I still can't talk on the phone using my left ear.

    Piercing guns ang ginamit sa akin. Hindi naman siya masakit. Parang nag-numb lang 'yung left ear ko. Think of it as having a "sipit" or laundry pin pinned on the top of your ear. For the longest time, hahaha! Kaya naman. It have it any day over the pain caused by a toothache or dysmenorrhea, hahaha! :lol:

    'Yung mga cousin ko, karayom ang ginamit nila. 'Yun ang hindi ko kaya! :eek:
