It is important to take care of your piercing initially after you get it and even after you begin to change the piercing. The usual after-care routine is to wash twice daily with a sea salt and water combination. Never touch or play with the piercing with unwashed hands; this can lead to an infection. During the first three months, though, it is advised to not rotate, twist or touch the piercing with bare hands. Use paper towels to clean the piercing. Never use rubbing alcohol or peroxide to clean the piercing.
After the initial change of the piercing, make sure to clean the new jewelry before inserting and then continue with your cleaning routine as the nose adjusts to the new jewelry. After you first change your jewelry, you will have to see how your nose responds, if it becomes agitated then you need to wait a while before changing it again.
Nose piercings generally take a long time to heal enough to leave the piercing out for an extended time, and in some cases the piercing may never be stable. That is why it is important to continually clean your nose ring and monitor how your nose responds to different jewelry and when you change it.
