REMEMBER THE SWELLING
Remember, all pierced regions will tend to swell immediately after treatment, and the item of jewelry you have inserted will be designed to accommodate this.
Tongue piercings may swell to the limit of the inserted bar, and this can be reduced by rinsing the mouth with iced water.
DON'T DO THE FOLLOWING:
DO NOT: Apply Bactine.
DO NOT: Apply Neosporin.
DO NOT: Apply alcohol.
DO NOT: Rub, scratch, or pick at the piercing.
DO NOT: Apply any salt water contents.
