In brief: Alcohol wipes

Recently pierced ears can be cleaned with an alcohol wipe or rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball.
Be sure to also wipe the post of the ear rings.

In brief: Clean ear piercing

Sterile saline sprays can work well.
If the cartilage is pierced as well as skin, you might want to see a dermatologist or plastic surgeon to make sure there is no infection before you continue taking care of the wound.
