All things you need to know about tragus piercing
Putting jewelry on the ear, nose, eyebrows, lips, tongue or other parts of the body does not usually use the anesthetic. Otolaryngology is usually performed and is generally less risky than other parts of the body.
So, do you know about tragus piercing? This article will show you all things you need to know about tragus piercing.
1. Tragus piercing is safe?
When done in a professional environment and ensure hygiene, piercing is quite safe. However, if the piercing device is not recommended for sterilization, teenagers will be at risk for blood diseases, including Hepatitis B, hepatitis C, tetanus, HIV.
Even in sterile environment, there are some possible hazards such as chronic infections, skin allergies, abscess, swelling or nerve damage, prolonged bleeding
In general, teen should consult with your doctor prior to piercing, especially if you have diabetes, heart disease, poor immunosuppression, taking steroid or blood thinning medications, pregnant.
Should a tragus piercing gun or needle be used?
Needles are judged to be cleaner and safer than guns.
The gun is safe to use once or disinfected. Teenagers should only choose this service if they want to wear earrings because they can also damage the skin tissue more when using a needle.
How to take good care of the tragus piercing
Skin irritation may cause swelling, redness or slight bleeding. Ask the piercing adviser to show you how to clean the piercing.
•           Use mouthwash if you are recommended on tongue, lips or cheeks, use after each meal and before going to sleep. Use a soft bristle brush to clean your teeth and leave the tips in the evening.
•           Cleanse the skin of the piercing: clean the skin with a paste of water, remember to curse hands before cleaning the skin piercing.
•           Avoid swimming until your skin is healed
•           Do not touch the piercing site regularly: do not touch, twist if you are not cleaning the area. Do not rub clothing on the skin with frequent piercing to avoid irritation
•           Keep jewelry in place: most piercing spots will heal within 6 weeks but may be longer. If you want to last a long time, keep the jewelry until the skin heals itself to avoid scarring
If you think it is advisable to give you an infection or wound that is watery, swollen or unhealthy you should see a doctor to be treated promptly to avoid serious complications.
How long does it take to heal?
This time period also depends on the position pierced on your body. Usually, it depends on each type of tragus piercing:
•           Piercing at ear lobes: 6-8 weeks.
•           Piercing in cartilage: 4 months - 1 year.
•           Piercing in eyebrows: 6-8 weeks.
•           Nostrils: 2-4 months
•           nasal septum: 6-8 months.
•           Tongue: 4 weeks.
•           Lips: 2-3 months.
•           Navel: 4 months-1 year.

Remember that if you pierce the mouth or lips, the trigger may cause the tooth to crack, break, or gums to recede. This is also the position of piercing tips to make teenagers more susceptible to infection.
Risk factors affect health
Allergies to jewelry: Some jewelry, especially nickel-containing jewelry, commonly causes allergies on the wearer's site.
Oral Complications: The wear on the tongue can cause chafing and breaking of the teeth can even affect the gums. Tongues can be swollen after piercing so it will affect chewing food, swallowing food, breathing.
Skin infections: Skin rash, pain, swelling, and drooling are signs of skin infection after piercing.
Other skin problems: Piercing can lead to scarring and keloids.
Blood Transfusions: Equipment used for piercing can cause the transmission of hepatitis B, hepatitis C, tetanus and HIV infection.

The problems may be mild, may also be severe and require medical intervention such as medication to prevent allergic reactions or infection.
Make sure you understand the possible complications and carefully consider whether you should advise in any position.
The importance of safety measures
To ensure safe piercing, you should pay attention to:
People do piercing advice: do not try to pierce yourself or ask someone who has not experienced piercing advice. Come to a prestigious place and have a lot of experience in this.
Pierce advised to wear gloves? Make sure the person who cleanse you will always wash your hands clean and change the new gloves when you make them
The device is suitable: for ear piercing people use a device like a gun to push through the ear lobes, but with the body is recommended to push the needle through the section you want to wear before. Put jewelry on after. And certainly the needle must be sterile to minimize the possibility of infection.
Recommended piercing equipment should be sterilized: Make sure that the piercing site is recommended with sterile instruments (such as autoclaves). The instruments must be sterilized after each use by autoclave or disinfected or cleaned with conventional detergent.
What happens if the hole is inflamed?
After piercing, the teen may feel pain or swelling. However, if this condition persists, the vaginal opening is inflamed.
You should be more careful when piercing in the mouth. Bacteria in the mouth will increase the risk of infection.
Keep an eye on the following signs of infection:
•           Feelings do not decrease after 1-2 days.
•           Unusual pain and swelling at the piercing position.
•           Yellow discharge, smell bad.
•           prolonged bleeding.
•           Severe redness.
If you think you have an infection, do not:
•           Detox, because this will make the hole tips, the area of infection difficult to handle.
•           Get medical treatment for prompt.
Signs when susceptible to metal?
Some people are sensitive to metal jewelry. Common signs are:
•           red
•           Itching or burning sensation when cleaning piercing.
