    Exclamation Be careful with aftercare solution!

    Hello! I had an aftercare solution that was a pink spray called something like "X-pression" aftercare. Some of you warned me at the time it was not good. I was doing really well with it for my Rook and had no trouble etc... I asked my piercer again for this in the aftercare set you get and she said to be really careful with it. This was for my third lobe piercings. Well, this is a warning to you all - it is not good with some people as my lobes are now suffering. lol... Basically, they are red and the skin is falling off on the lower lobes. *Sticking to shower clean now*

    Ouch!
    Rinsing in the shower works best for me, I always figure as long as I'm keeping the area clean my body will just heal itself up

    Thank you Hazel for the Stericlense suggestion. I have got now got some. My lobes are doing well and the rest of my lobes are healing too (They were so sore on that Saturday due to the cleaner). I will only use Stericlense and rinsing in the shower. (I will not use any other things for cleaning piercings).
