Assuming it's still there, and not torn out... Do a warm sea salt soak as soon as you can, soaking for at least 10 mins., then rinse.  Follow with a mild soap cleanse (using your gentle liquid antibacterial/antimicrobial soap) if it is a piercing still being healed.  Continue sea salt soaks several times a day -- on top of regular aftercare if it is still healing -- until your piercing returns to normal.
