After a belly button piercing?…?

I had my belly button pierced 4 days ago. It looks good n its clean and all that junk but I was told to keep it covered for like a week with a bandaid.. but I am in extreme pain because each time I pull off a bandaid, I get a red bruised rash. I don't know if I'm allergic to them or if it's just from repeated tearing of my skin.. but I do not want to wear one anymore. if I don't cover it, would I be better wearing tight stretchy shirts that don't move, or loose? Also i'm reading around the web that you're not supposed to swim for a while, or go indoor tanning.. however my piercer said I can swim in chlorine all I want because if anything it's good for it. Just not lakes and beaches and stuff. and he said I can tan as long as I put polysporin or vaseline on the piercing. So whos right here?

  2. Jakes baby giglet Says:

    you are not supposed to wear a band aid on a new belly piercing

    when i got mine done, what i did was to make sure i do not sleep on it
    i cleaned it 3 times a day with antibacterial soap in the shower or out of the shower

    and thats it
    dont touch it and dont put any band aids on it

    I Absolutely would not swim! Also I wouldn’t keep a band aid on it either. When I had mine done they told me to buy sea salt and mix it with warm water and irrigate the piercing. I never had any problems and it healed quickly. I wouldn’t wear anything tight if your skin is all ready irritated.Hope this helps you out.

    You’re not meant to wear bandages after the first day of getting your navel pierced. Wear clothes that wont get caught in your belly bar, and don’t change the bar for 6 weeks. Keep it clean every day, and they say no sex for the first week

    omg! stop it, please. is this guy a moron?
    take the bandaid off. don’t swim in a pool. don’t use any ointments.
    if you must swim, use Tegaderm. it’s a waterproof bandage you can get at any drug store. go to safepiercing.org for complete aftercare instructions.
