Question: Piercing Healing - Working Out with a New Piercings
Is it OK to keep working out at the gym if you have a piercing healing?
Answer: As long as you're keeping your piercing clean, it should not be harmed by your workout routine. Sweat can, however, irritate a piercing and introduce germs and bacteria into the wound. It's important that you shower and clean the piercing well after your workout is complete.
