As much as you would want to, don’t apply any kind of alcohol containing or antibiotic ointments on it. Don’t irritate the infected skin as it will worsen the condition.
Here’s what you can do:
– Wash the infected area with saltwater at least three times a day. Make sure that your hands are clean before touching the infected skin.
– After washing, pat it dry with paper towel.

One more important thing-
Do not remove your piercing. If you remove it, you may end up closing the hole and trapping the infection in it.

I would advise you to take routine care as it may take 6 weeks to completely heal like it was in my case. So make sure you take good care of it till then. If the conditions don’t improve within 2 weeks, seek medical attention.
