To go with piercing into the sauna - is that possible?

Piercing is very popular as body jewelry and is worn by many people, men and women alike, in almost all age groups. From the nose piercing up to the genital piercing there are many variations. And also the classic earring belongs to this kind of body jewellery. But can one (or woman) with piercing also go to the sauna?

With piercings in the sauna it always depends on the material

A fundamental answer to this question cannot be given can be given. For this there are too many variants and variables, which the piercing itself and the carrying habits. However, it is advisable, above all Piercings made of metal to be removed before going into the sauna. This recommendation is especially based on the fact that piercings made of metal are very good thermal conductivity in the sweat room heat up very strongly and definitely can lead to burns. This is especially true for freely movable Piercings. Somewhat differently it behaves with very close to the skin Piercings made of metal. These take rather the body temperature than the Sauna air on. That is then less worrisome.

Completely uncomplicated however the wearing of Piercings in the sauna, if they are made of plastic. Plastics heat up less and therefore hardly cause any burns on the skin.

By the way, the materials of most piercings are insensitive to the sauna climate, so that material damages themselves are not to be expected.
