To keep your Belly Button Piercing healthy, here are a few tips that you need to care;

Wash hands before touching your piercing

Buy an antibacterial cleanser or a liquid cleanser every time you touch your piercing, it should be fragrance-free antibacterial soap. It should be foam based and clean the bacteria.

Clean your piercing

Gently clean the belly button piercing with the cleanser 2-3 times every day. Delicately turn the jewelry so that the cleanser enters the gap, let it sit for about a moment, and afterward wash it thoroughly. If you were given a special cleanser or directions by your piercer, do follow them regularly.

Wash your bedding regularly

Ensure that your bed sheets and bed covers are kept clean while your piercing is healing. This is especially essential if you think about your stomach!

Wear perfect, baggy dress

Rubbing and irritation from cloths is shocking for new piercings, so make sure to wear free tops and loose, soft material jeans or pants to abstain from bothering the piercing. If your garments may rub, or irritate your piercing, cover it with a hard ventilated eye patch to ensure you don’t cause scarring or infection.

Try not to bath or swim

Baths, pools, and standing water can harbor a wide range of bacteria, so no swimming until your piercing gets healed. Just take showers.

Don’t remove your jewelry

Removing the jewelry can not just permit the gap to shut everything down it has not completed the process of cleaning, but rather can permit bacteria to contaminate the post of the adornments or the piercing site with bacteria.

Make sure to check your ball conclusion regularly

Use clean hands or a clean paper products to ensure your piercing is closed tight several times every day, and prior or after cleaning. Keep in mind the tight-right, lefty-loosey run the show. It is a smart idea to keep a second clean ball closure in a clean loose with you in all circumstances just if you loose a closure.

Jewelry should be clean

Make sure to clean all jewelry before inserting it into the piercing! If you choose to change the gems, make sure to wait at least 3 months, so that the piercing will be healed enough to deal with the change.
