The right treatment after you have pierced your ears is important. Here you can read what you have to do yourself in the following weeks.

The following must be performed during the healing period:

1. Always wash your hands with soap before touching your ears.

2. Twist the ear plugs slightly twice a day to prevent them from getting stuck in the ear.

3. Clean the front and back of the holes in the ears twice daily with Inverness Ear Care on a cotton swab. This prevents the multiplication of bacteria and speeds up the healing process.

Inverness Ear Care has been specially developed to ensure the best and most effective post-treatment of new holes in the ears. The active ingredient is Benzalkonium Chloride, which does not crack or dry out the skin.

4. Make sure that it is always clean, dry and airy around the new holes in the ears. Especially after swimming or training. Rinse ears thoroughly with water after washing hair with soap. Cover your ears when using spray perfume, hairspray and hair dye. Keep the hair away from the ears whenever possible until the healing process is complete.

After the healing period:

Do not go without earrings for the first year after having your ears pierced, as the holes may shrink or close completely.

The ears are ready for you to switch to other earrings after the healing period.

Healing time:

Earlobe: 6 weeks
The cartilage part:
12 weeks

The ear plugs must NOT be removed during the healing period!

You are welcome in the store so we can help you find some new smart earrings.

Important information

Persistent redness or swelling indicates an infection or that your body will not accept a foreign object. It is therefore extremely important that you responsibly follow the care advice to ensure optimal healing of your pierced ears. In case of persistent pain, redness or swelling during the first 24 hours, do the following:

Earlobe: Loosen the back mechanism and clean the front and back of the hole three times a day with Inverness Ear Care . If it does not improve within a few days, remove the earplug and see a doctor.

The cartilage part: If the piercing is in the cartilage part of the ear, you must be extra careful to follow the following instructions, as an infection in this part of the ear can cause serious complications. If pain, redness or swelling persists for more than 24 hours, despite frequent cleaning with Inverness Ear Care, remove the earplug and seek medical attention as soon as possible.
