when it swells a great deal and green and dark yellow stuff starts coming. Also the piercing may smell or start to drain into the person's mouth in worse case scenario. It can also be red and hurt to the touch. If you have any of these symptoms (this goes for people who's symptoms just started if you got yours pierced yesterday the swelling, redness, and soreness is normal. ) if you catch it early immediately start washing your mouth with non-alcoholic mouthwash and do sea salt water soaks for 10 minutes. This should clear it up, if it doesnt then go to your piercer and have them take the piercing out. If the infection is very bad (like all the symptoms plus the piercing is kind of making a crater in your face, then go to you piercer have them take it out then go to your doctor to have them prescribe antibiotics for you. I REALLY HOPE I HELPED.
Its normal for your lip to be swollen on the third day just keep it clean and you should be fine...mine was most swollen on the fifth day.
I've had my lip done for over a week now and the back diggs in... The only reason its digging in is because you just got it done and its swollen... When the swelling goes down it wont be as bad but once it heals if its still digging in its probally best you go get a longer bell bar... The longer the bell bar the less it diggs in...
Suck it up and be a man/woman..it will be swollen for a bit and you will start to see white/ yellowish liquid which is normal also..just use sea salt and water about three times a day and keep the outside clean and itll be fine
Well its not infected because for the first week its going to get Algol.btw if your going to use mouth wash then use one without alcohol because that can irritate the lip piercing.
Just keep it clean as much as possible! It will take a while and it's going to be hard especially on the lip. Everytime you eat or drink...I'd clean it...got a spray bottle?
I got mine done about 5 days ago and I got the same problem its red with a crust! Just leave it alone cleaning it nd trying to take out the pus will infect it more stop touchin it nd playin wit iht just leave it alone
Oh for God's sake! Listerine and Bactine? Try just using salt water and tea tree oil 2 - 3 times a day and using ice and ibuprofen for the pain and swelling, it's not rocket science and your piercer should have told you all this. Clean the outside and the inside with different cotton balls, put a drop of tea tree oil on the outside, leave for a minute and wash off and dry with a clean tissue. The breadstick wouldn't have affected it because it is a very new piercing and will be swollen and painful for a while, keep it clean and use instructions above or don't bother having any piercings in the future if you don't know how to take care of them properly.
Well I myself don't know what to say. I got mine done by myself about 3 days ago and I feel a bump in my lip where I did it I'm really scared so I really recommend don't do it yourself.
Is it normal for the back of the piercing to be digging into the back of your lip.?? It is my third day with my lip piercing.
