Can I take my lip stud out to clean it?

I’ve had my medusa pierced for over a year, I have a plastic backing with a stud. I’m wondering if taking the piercing out is worth it just to clean it or should I leave it in? Will it close up or get infected?

    If you’ve had your medusa that long it will not close up IF you take it out just to clean it. Plastic backs for the medusa can harbour more bacteria. I suggest you soak it in salt water for 15 minutes and clean around the hole. Then put it back in. You can do this as often as you’d like. You will not get an infection as you’ve had it a substantial amount of time. (I have my Septum, Medusa and Vertical Labret pierced)
