In brief: Yes.

Lever 2000 is antibacterial and may be a better choice to decrease bacteria and decrease the chance of an infection.

In brief: Body piercing clean

Cleansing of the area can be done with sterile saline initially.
Some antibacterial soaps are irritating so be careful. Any new redness with pain and swelling should be addressed by a physician.
