With summer approaching, now is the best time to get your belly button piercing. It’s best to get your piercing healed up before you head outside in the sun.
With summer right around the corner, the hottest trends to help you sizzle include belly button rings. Whether you are beach bound or just enjoy showing off your midriff, they can be an excellent complement to a great body. You worked hard to look good, so it might be time to get that piercing you’ve been hoping for. You may not be aware of it, but it’s actually a really good idea to get your piercing done well before summer hits. You need give it plenty of time to heal before you expose it to ocean or pool water. Bacteria can get in and create a harmful infection. If you do wait until summer to get the piercing, you may want to sit out for the first few weeks while you wait for things to heal.
Another thing you have to be aware of with belly button rings is how easy they can be to snag on clothing. You should avoid purchasing dangling jewelry as it has the greatest potential to snag when you least expect it. You should start out with a simple stud and work your way up to other belly button rings as your piercing heals and you begin to feel more comfortable. You should also avoid wearing tight clothing while things are still healing. This can also make you sweat, which will irritate your healing wound and could lead to infection.
Signs of an infection include redness, swelling and puss drainage. Sometimes these symptoms can also indicate your body rejecting the piercing. If you experience these symptoms and they appear to be worsening, don’t hesitate to contact your doctor. They can usually help you get things cleared up within a few days. If things are getting particularly painful or bad looking, you may need to consider taking out the piercing until you get medical attention.
