Lots of precaution and care is needed since it is in the lower region of the body. It is prone to dust, dirt, and germs which could lead to possible infection. Use of socks can be painful too as it takes time for the pierced skin to get used to the stress and change it undergoes. One cannot limit the movement hence raising the chances of complications.


To avoid any kind of infection, try to keep the area clean and dry as much as possible. Wash your hands nicely before coming in contact with the concerned area. Wash the ankle with salt water solution twice a day, and avoid going in the pool also.
