    Hi, Oral or facial piercing is unique as body and oral aftercare is required. Here are some tips you should remember when you get a Monroe Piercing. * The optimal oral aftercare for Monroe piercing is to rinse your mouth at least for 1 minute with a medical-grade mouth wash after your meal. * If medical-grade mouthwash is not accessible then you can try diluted oral antiseptic for your oral rinse. * It is advisable not to use the regular oral rinse or mouthwash as it might cover your halitosis. * Remember not to over-clean your piercing as it will delay the healing process. * In addition to your oral rinse you can even try sea salt rinse after every meal. This will enhance your healing process. * For reducing the swelling ice and other chilled liquids would be helpful. Ice creams, frozen yogurts and ice pops are beneficial in reducing the swelling. * For highly sensitive people over-the-counter analgesics or anti-inflammatory drugs can be helpful in reducing the pain and swelling. * You should at least brush your teeth three times a day as brushing will reduce the amount of food particles and bacteria in your mouth. * Even primary facial care is necessary for oral or facial piercing. * Clean your face twice in a day with an anti-bacterial soap and luke warm water. Facial steaming and hot water will help in loosing the crust below your jewelry and in softening your skin. * Use disposable products like tissue paper, swab or cotton-ball to gently remove the crust from your jewelry. * Before touching your jewelry or even during shower it is advisable to wash your hands with anti-bacterial soap. * You can even try using sea salt soaks before or after your shower. * Eat slowly and place little portion of food in your mouth. * During the healing period refrain yourself from eating chewing gums, tobacco products or any other sticky things. * Check that your jewelry accessories are tightened at least once in a day. * Avoid using petroleum-based products during the healing period. After effects of Monroe Piercing According to the monroe piercing experts, the most effective way to heal the piercing and to deal with the after effects of monroe piercing, is to promote healthy life style. * You need to remember that any kind of piercing is an injury on your body. As a result you can have tenderness, discoloring, swelling and sometimes bruising, bleeding and itching. * Since it is a wound, so very naturally there will be the secretion of a white-yellow fluid containing blood plasma and dead cells. This fluid is likely to dry and form a crust on the jewelry. So you need to remove it properly to avoid further infection.
