Just got my Monroe piercing. Any tips on how to keep it clean?

I've been using mouth wash and peroxide.. is this ok or should I be doing something different?

Take it out because they looked terrible, you'll never get an infection

listerine is great for deadening it, but the peroxide will keep the infection boiled out, either way it will be sore for few days, good luck !!!!!!

Hydrogen peroxide and nesporin are not to be used on any piercings. Each will try to heal your wound, which will make your piercing even more irritated because it's trying to get that foreign body out. Lysterine is great, but the best is the cleaner your artist gives you.

Just as long as your keeping it clean then your fine... Not sure exactly what you mean by mouth wash... but peroxide is ok... theres also stuff you can get at walmart thats actually for piercings that about 2 dollars and last you months. That may be a better idea but if the peroxide's not aggravating you then you fine.

Bactine is great. Twist it to keep the crusties off or pick them off. Don't let food get by it. I know a lot of people who used weird stuff and it ended up getting infected. So I just did it my way which I explained :) Just do whatever you can to make sure it is clean!

Are you people kidding me the best thing for any piercing is sea salt and warm water it'll heal you up in no time if you clean it real good with this at least once a day.

No peroxide! It destroys new granulation tissue which impedes healing. Ask your piercer for cleaning info.
