I just pierced my left ear a few hours ago and i dont really know what to do now. I sterilised the thing i used to make the piercing and the actual earring. I sterilised it by putting it in boiling hot water (taken from the tap and boiled) and leaving it in there for 10 minutes. I didnt add dettol or anything like that in the water i boiled, it was just plain water. Im not sure how to take care of it and if i sterilised it (or at least disinfected) right.
What should i do now, its been a few hours since i pierced it, and its only a bit swollen i think, and theres no pain just slight discomfort when i touch it. Is it safe to take it off to see how it looks? And how often and how should i clean it? Is rotating it a good idea or does it **** up the wound more? And is there a way to get the wound to heal in less than 6 weeks?
By the way, if i was to let it close up should i cover it with a plaster, or what?
