Can I use the Biotene mouthspray for lip piercing?

Asked by xTheDreamer (845 points ) January 26th, 2012

I was looking for the Biotene mouthwash here where I live(Arnhem, The Netherlands) but I couldn’t find the mouthwash. They only have the mouthspray, can I use that mixed with water and use it like a mouthwash for my piercing after eating?

My piercer give me a pack of seasalt but it looks like that wouldn’t last me a week. He said to use it every time after I eat but yea it’s just a small pack. So I went looking for alcohol free mouthwash like Listerine but it all had alcohol in it. So I remember I read that you can use Biotene mouthwash but the only thing I found was the mouthspray.

If you mix a little bit of water in it and use it every time after you eat, it would be fine. Anything really works to clean it, it’s just the matter of would it sting or not..but your solution wouldn’t..don’t worry.

Why not just buy a small nasal saline at the drugstore and use it on your lip instead? I don’t have piercings, however, as I understand it, the saline helps soothe and heal faster. The saline (sea salt) was what was recommended. I’d stick with it.

If you can’t find a nasal saline, get a small spray bottle and make saline with distilled water & sea salt.
