Can you use iodized sea salt to clean an ear piercing?
| Ear Piercings
My mom went out and bought Iodized sea salt to clean my ear piercing, but I've heard that you shouldn't use it. I heard it might burn a little but I don't mind that. I've also heard that it has chemicals. Is it alright to clean it with the iodized sea salt?
I also used alcohol to clean it yesterday, but my mom told me not to.
What about uniodized salt? I found some kosher salt and it says that it does not contain iodide.
