If you have it done , what was the healing process like ?
How long was it swollen , red or crusty ?
How do you know its infected ?
Mine was never swollen or crusty, but it never got infected.
mine was swollen for a few days
Mine was only swollen for the first day or two. It got a little crusty every now and then. That's normal. Just keep an eye out for green puss..that's a no go, but if it does get infected, justcontinuouslyclean it. Don't take it out, because it can trap the infection inside.
hm. the swelling went down a day or two later. it was only red for a day. and it was crusty for like a month. just have to keep cleaning it.
for infections. my lip was 3 times it's normal size. but that could also be that he peirced it in the wrong spot.
If it's kind goopy/crusty & the goop/crust smells, it's infected. However, it's very common for piercings to let out a discharge as its healing. Mine was swollen for about a week.
i've had mine twice. the first time it was only numb/swollen for a day or two. you have to be careful for about a week after eating. should rinse mouth with mouthwash so it doesn't get infected. mine was never crusty/dry. you'll know when it's infected. it will get all red and start to hurt.
I got it!!! hurt like all hell lol. it didn't really stay swelled for long, and i sorta got a bit crusty but i think that was because I wasn't diluting the dettol lol. it took a few months for mine to heal compleatly
It will take up to6 weeks to heal.
It should only be swollen for about 3-4 days
It will stay red for about 3 weeks (just a small circle around the piercing)
It will "crust" for about 2-3 weeks.
You will know if it is infected because there will be a white/yellow puss coming from it. It will have a sharp sting throughout.
Whatever you do...do NOT put antibiotic cream, peroxide, or rubbing alcohol on it. These will cause your body to reject the metal.
I did mine mine self and it didn't swell and I cleaned it three times a day and ad no problems.
Thanks ladies ..
Mine is really red still , its been about a week but everyone keeps asking me if its infected & its freaking me out !
