Treatment of the Belly Button Piercing

December 10, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 177

Navel perforation is usually done above the navel, although sometimes it is also done under it. It is important to know that you can not have two perforations done simultaneously, because body tissues shrink during the healing process and channels interfere with each other to form freely. However, it is possible to have a perforation done above and under the belly button at the same time.

Treatment of the belly button piercing

The Navel is a place, where the body dirt amasses, which may cause a variety of infections. If the belly button has not dried completely, it can be subjected to generation of bacteria. So, as soon as you detect infections, inflammation and redness or feel itching or some other strange symptoms, you should take immediate steps to treat them.

Belly button piercing is located in one of the most flexible parts of the body. Constant movement of the waist can injure fresh perforations and the clothes you wear constantly rub and touch the wound. With the proper treatment the wound in the belly button heals completely in 3-4 months but in some cases the healing process may even last up to 12 months.

The duration of the healing depends upon various factors such as the state of your health, your weight, whether you keep to a diet, the clothes you wear, your occupation and, what is the most important, how carefully you take care of it. If you worry about possible difficulties with healing, it is better to insert a banana-shaped barbell than a ring first to make sure it will not rotate.

During the first 4-5 days after perforation your belly button usually look fine, and then you can detect some redness at the place where the jewelry enters the body. Some crust can begin to form around the piercing but you don't have to worry because these are just dead white blood cells. There is going to be a small amount of liquid at the place of perforation that is a sign that your body fights the foreign matter. If it comes to profuse discharge and the liquid turns to yellowish or you feel pain and observe excessive redness, it could be a sign of a possible infection.

In 6-8 weeks the liquid discharge will have to diminish and there should be only some redness left around the piercing. The wound is not completely healed until the redness disappears at all. If you stop treating the wound before it heals, you can catch an infection.

Jewelry for belly button piercing

For a standard initial piercing of the belly button bananas and rings of the size 1.6mm x 10mm/12mm are used. Jewelry like rings with pendants or with large irregular edges (in form of a flower, for example) can not be applied for the initial piercing. During pregnancy it is recommended to change the navel adornment to a barbell of the size 1.6mm x 16mm/18mm made of flexible teflon. The change of the adornment should be done only after complete healing of the wounds. If the perforation is done under the navel, the banana-like barbell (standard jewelry for the belly button piercing in form of a curved pin with a gem or without it) may also be inserted turned back to front.

Wearing piercing during pregnancy

You can wear your navel piercing up to 6 months of pregnancy. Though, everything depends upon the state of the woman's health. Then you have either to remove your piercing jewelry at all or to replace it with a big ring made of bioplastic.
