I recently got additional piercings, but this piercerer gave me some information that was kind of new to me. He said I can't exercise, drink alcohol or have sex for two weeks to minimum the risk of infection. I can kind of understand that sex increases the risk of infections, and that alcohol inhibits the healing; but I don't quite understand and didn't ask why exercising is not recommended? I even asked if slight jogging is okay but he said no; what effect does exercising have on healing/infecting?
