    Question Saline Solution for new Conch & fairly new Tragus Piercing...

    I had my tragus pierced 3 months ago & my inner conch pierced nearly 2 weeks ago & my piercer told me to clean it twice a day with saline solution.

    I went out & bought a 360ml bottle of Superdrug's own saline solution (in a blue bottle) to clean my piercings with, but it says on it that it's "suitable for all contact lenses".

    Is this the right stuff to be using for my 2 beloved piercings? Or is there an alternative saline solution I can go out & buy on the cheap as I always seem to muck up my own solutions :(

    ********

    Currently: 4 lobes, left nostril, left tragus, left inner conch
    Want: Right helix, left helix, right snug?

    It has a buffer, a preservative and anti-microbial stuff in it. It's not great for piercings but it's not horrific either. This stuff is better and it's sterile:

    What are your opinions on the easypiercing saline solution spray which you can get on Amazon?

    Nothing wrong with it but it's a bit of a rip off to me, seems to just be saline with a fancy name at almost 5 times the price.

    Stericlens: 8 for 240ml
    Easypiercing: 7 for 50ml

    Your choice
    Piercings: 6 lobes, 2 12mm stretched lobes, 4 helices, 3 tragus, daith, 2 nostril, 2.4mm VCH, 2.4mm daith
    Modifications: 5mm septum punch,
    coinslot ear cartilage removal, 5mm conch punch
    Cosmetic Modifications: Scar removal x6, semi permanent eyebrows, semi permanent eyeliner, lip dermal filler, botox
    Retired Piercings: 3 nipple, tongue, 4 philtrum, 4 eyebrow, 2 outer labia, VCH, 1 lobe, rook, nostril, 3 nape MDs, 2 wrist MDs, septum, 3 upper conch, conch, 5 helices

    Thanks Hazel, I've just ordered a bottle of Stericlens
    Do you know if it gets rid of piercing swelling in a short amount of time?
