I just did my piercing at home. any suggestions on how to keep it from getting infected?
Not getting it pierced at home would've been a good start... Honestly, you can get it done at the doctor's for cheaper than places like Claire's (and they have better training too!)Clean it with rubbing alcohol every morning and night. Rotate your earring at that time too.
Wash it with soap and water, don't touch it because your hands pick up germs
Get a Q-tip and swap it with peroxide every two to four hours, and if it is a belly piercing you cannot get it wet and wear a white shirt to be on the safe side.
Just make sure you keep it clean rotating it and swabbing it with rubbing alcohol should be ok.
