Remedies For Infections After Lip Piercing

  • Lip piercing infections are always very critical to deal with and the doctor will always recommend you to apply some ointment along with ‘removing your metal’ for a few days. The ointment will gradually fill in the pierced part and you will have to go through the pain of piercing all over again. A simple home treatment is to apply some sea salt. Mix some sea sodium in normal water and apply on the infection with a cotton ball. Repeat it 3 times a day.
  • For swelling and bleeding after lip piercing, apply ice on the swollen part 2 times a day. Also, wash your lips with ice cold water 5 times a day.
  • Put some used coffee or tea bag on the infected part.
  • Remember to keep the metal in the hole during the healing process, or the hole will fill in 2 to 3 days. If you find no way other than removing the metal, then ask your piercer to remove it.
  • Use zinc and magnesium rich foods like oysters, low fat beef, potatoes, pumpkin, watermelon seeds, peanuts, mutton, crab, and the love of all – chocolates!
