Question Lip ring infection? - July 26th 2010, 03:41 PM

I got a lip ring 5 days ago. The place was very clean and everything was sterile. It looked fine up until like 2 days ago.

I noiced there was like a little white bump on the inside right under where it was pierced. Then yesterday I saw this red bump on the outside. And today I woke up and it looks like the white thing was bleeding (not a whole lot just like a spot of blood).

It doesn't hurt much. Just a little when I twist it back and forth.
I've been washing out my mouth with watered down mouthwash everytime I eat drink or smoke and I've been washing the outside with sensitive face wash two or three times a day.

I really don't want to take it out unless I absolutely have to.

If you have any advice please on how to get rid of the problem please help.
I'm not sure what to do.

They should have given you a cleaning solution to put on a Q-tip and put on the fresh hole... Mouthwash doesn't always keep it from getting infected. Go back to the place and ask them what to do.

Two is better than one.
