Modify always suggests seeing a piercer first in the instance of a irritated piercing
Chamomile Tea soaks
Chamomile tea soaks can help an irritated wound calm down and return to normal. Please make sure you do a patch test to ensure you are not allergic to the tea - do not use if you are allergic to ragweed.
How do I soak my piercing with the chamomile? Modify recommend doing this after doing a sea salt soak.
Get a pure chamomile tea bag and mix with a cup of boiling water
Wait until warm to strain the bag (and discard the bag)
Soak a fresh cotton ball in the tea and then soak the irritated piercing for 5 minutes
Repeat 1-2 times a day
A good trick for swollen piercings is to make up the mixture and pour it into an ice cube tray, freeze it and use the chamomile ice cubes to help with any swelling.
please do NOT combine saline / salt soaks with your chamomile soaks.
