FOR IRRITATIONS & IRRITATION BUMPS:
Make a soaking solution by mixing sea salt and distilled water. Be sure to use PURE SEA SALT (NON-IODIZED) and not table salt, which contains extra chemicals that can irritate your piercing. Do not use Epsom salts, as this is a completely different chemical compound. Make sure your salt-to-water ratio is correct. A stronger or weaker solution is not better and may harm your piercing.
TO USE: Fill a small glass with the solution, be sure to use glass or porcelain, as paper and plastics are pours and can contaminate your solution. Create a warm mixture by heating up in the microwave for a few seconds. Press the glass around the skin to form a seal, and hold it over your piercing for 5-10 minutes. For some piercings, such as nostrils, ears – the entire piercing should be submerged in the solution.
