When can I go swimming again?
Recommended wait time is 1 week. If swimming anytime during the initial 8 week healing period, we highly recommend rinsing ears with water after each swim. (A travel size water spray bottle works well.) A new piercing, just like a wound, needs to be kept clean, dry and open to air. Chlorine from pools and bacteria in oceans, lakes and rivers may cause irritation or contaminate the new piercing and delay healing.
