    You're supposed to move it while you clean it. It helps clean more of the area. I used unscented soap H2Ocean is okay if you're really concerned about how it's going to heal.

    don't have sex with it for a few weeks. Wait. Wrong piercing. But still, don;t use it for sex for a few weeks.

    they told me not to move mine and i did...and it rejected in less than a year...

    newer piercings are all cartilage and they have told me literally don't touch, don't move nothing just spray the spray and let it dry.

    All cartilage? In your bellybutton?

    I was told to use scent-free antibacterial soap with a q-tip. If it was sore they said to get a shot glass and hold warm water up to it. I've had mine for 6 years or so.

    I'm the worst person to offer advice because I never followed the after care and somehow got lucky with all of mine
    While in the shower just clean around it with a q-tip...that's all I ever did

    Oh okay. It sounded like you said new piercings in general are all cartilage. I didn't realize you meant YOUR new piercings are cartilage piercings.

    I got mine pierced like.. Idk 5 years ago maybe. They do want you to move it around a little bit to prevent it from healing around the jewelry and to clean it better, gets the soap down in it. Don't change it for like 6 weeks or something like that. And I used plain, unscented soap to wash it like once or twice a day. I think it was twice. They did start moving to using salt water of some sort like a year after I got it pierced but I've still always been told for piercings to use unscented soap to wash it. I've never heard of it causing issues and I don't see why it would unless you were allergic to the soap. Which is totally different.
