Healing Male Genital Piercing

There are several genital piercings for the male body. No matter what piercing you’re thinking about getting, the aftercare will be about the same, and you’ll find that for the most part, common sense plays a big factor.

Do not tough the piercing with dirty hands. Avoid baths for the first week or two, taking showers instead. While in the shower, clean the piercing, allowing the water to flow over the new piercing. You do not have to use soap, but if you feel the need, you can use a mild anti-bacterial product that does not contain any colorant or scents. Pat the piercing dry. Wear lose clothing. Do not use any ointment, cream, or astringent on the new piercing.

When you get a genital piercing, you should also avoid bodily fluids for the first few weeks, while the initial healing takes place. This does not necessarily mean to avoid all sexual activity, but it means to be careful, as bodily fluids can cause infection. If you do partake in sexual activities, make sure to clean the piercing afterward.

Male genital piercing healing times will vary based on the piercing. Throughout the entire healing process, be gentle to the piercing and keep it clean in order to avoid irritation and infection.
