EAR PIERCING

EAR CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Only valid when using genuine STUDEX® products.

 

Always wash hands thoroughly before touching studs or ear.

 

Cleanse front and back of the ear 2 times a day with STUDEX® Ear Care Lotion or Gel without removing studs. Apply lotion or gel to the front and back of the stud and gently slide forward and back. Repeat twice daily.

 

Keep hair spray, soap, shampoo and other preparations away from the ear. After shampooing, the ear should be rinsed with clear water and then apply STUDEX® Ear Care Lotion or Gel as described above.

 

The pierced area should be CLEANSED with STUDEX® Ear Care Lotion or Gel then kept DRY, especially after swimming or exercise.

 

DO NOT remove the studs from ear during ear care procedure.

 

DO NOT handle your ears and/or studs unnecessarily.

 

DO NOT push the clasp along the post towards the ear. This is essential as tight earrings may lead to infection.

 

DO NOT use alcohol or hydrogen peroxide to care for newly pierced ears.

 

EAR LOBE:

Leave studs on ears for 6 weeks continuously.

After 6 weeks, the stud can be removed and other post-type earrings may be worn continuously.

Use only post style earrings continuously for the first 6 months after piercing. The post should be surgical stainless steel or other hypoallergenic material.

 

 

 

 

Minor pain/redness may occur immediately after piercing - this is normal. This will settle within 48 hours provided proper after care is followed. If undue pain/swelling/redness occurs, consult your doctor IMMEDIATELY. If infection has set in, do not remove the ear piercing stud until you have consulted your doctor.

 

 

 

EAR CARTILAGE:

 

Leave studs in ears for 12 weeks continuously.

 

 

 

Use only post style earrings continuously for the first 12 months after piercing. The post should be surgical stainless steel or other hypoallergenic material.

 

 

 

Due to the nature of ear cartilage, extra care should be taken during the healing period. Minor pain/redness may occur immediately - this is normal. This will settle within 48 hours provided proper after care is followed. If undue pain/swelling/redness occurs, consult your doctor IMMEDIATELY. If infection has set in, do not remove the ear piercing stud until you have consulted your doctor.

 

 

 

Note: Failure to properly follow aftercare procedures or to seek IMMEDIATE medical advice should a problem occur may result in permanent damage to the ear cartilage.
