    You really need something biocompatible like Titanium or bioflex, steel contains nickel which can cause reactions. Alcohol isn't a good idea either, just rinsing in the shower would be more than enough. The white liquid will be lymph which is completely normal.

    Hey, so I finally bought new piercing.

    http://www.crazy-factory.com/product...oducts_id=3986

    I put in the bioflex with titanium balls, but I read on the Internet that the bioflex is not good for a fresh piercing, so after 2 days I changed it into titanium one. And now I found out that this one titanium might be bad for fresh piercing as well because its colorful.

    What should I do?

    By the way, now my piercing is 6.5 months old

    What should I do
    both bioflex and grade 23 titanium are good for fresh piercings so don't know where you heard this information from
    Piercings I have

    left ear: lobes-1sts and 2nds, helix
    right ear: lobes- 1sts and 2nds, 3rds (lower cartilage),
    right nostril

    Stop believing everything you read. Both those statements are 100% false. Both materials are biocompatible as long as it's genuine bioflex/bioplast and the titanium bar is anodized and not plated. Both the things you linked to are fine.

    Leave it alone, let it heal, you've set back healing with each change. They can take 12 months or more to heal fully as it is.

    Rinse it in the shower, keep it dry and free from irritation and your body will heal it.
