Can You Use Saline Nasal Spray For Piercing? Yes, saline solution is used as a disinfectant to clean and heal piercings. It is also used to soak new piercings after taking out the starter jewelry.
Saline solution can be purchased over-the-counter in the form of nasal sprays or drops.
We do NOT recommend using the nasal spray solution for your new piercing. The primary reason is that the saline solution in nasal sprays contains preservatives, stabilizers and other ingredients that can irritate and delay healing. If you choose to use a salt water solution on your piercing, we recommend making it yourself by combining 1/8 teaspoon of non-iodized sea salt with 8 ounces of warm (not hot) distilled or bottled water.
If you are experiencing crusting, try applying some H2Ocean Piercing Aftercare Spray or a small amount of antibacterial soap to a wet cotton swab, then use the swab to gently remove the crust from your jewelry or piercing.
I use saline solution for my nostril piercing (along with antibacterial soap) and it’s worked fine. I assume that the one from the pharmacy is the same as what you buy at Claire’s, so the answer should be yes.
Saline solution is a very simple saline solution. It is used to clean wounds and help them heal, but it can also be used to clean your nose. Many people find saline nasal sprays very helpful in ridding their nose of allergens and irritants.
Nasal cleaning products are available on the market; however, some people may prefer to make their own saline nasal spray. To make a homemade saline nasal spray, add 1/4 teaspoon salt to 8 ounces of water. The solution should be made up fresh each day and refrigerated after use.
A person can purchase saline nasal sprays from most pharmacies or make one at home by mixing salt and water. A person should always use warm salt water for this purpose because cold water will prevent the infection from draining properly. If a person does not have warm water readily available, they can always use bottled water which has been boiled for several minutes before using it as a saline rinse solution.
I would recommend using a sea salt water solution instead. You can easily find the instructions online. I have my tongue pierced and I used a sea salt solution twice a day and it helped tremendously.
I have a similar problem. I have had my nose pierced for about 4 years now but it’s not healing properly. If I clean it, it looks fine and heals quickly but I keep getting the white stuff on it and it just doesn’t seem to heal all the way.
Sometimes I can use a q-tip and get most of the white stuff off, clean it with sea salt solution, then put a little bit of Vaseline on it to help it heal quicker. But sometimes no matter what I do, the white stuff still comes back within minutes.
Yes you can, it is just saline solution which is basically salt water and very gentle.
