Is my monroe infected?

I had my monroe piercing for 13 days and I have a big knot on the outside of my lip. It doesn't hurt and no puss is coming out. What's happening?

  • Is it red and swollen? If yes, it's probably infected. Your best bet is to follow up with your doctor.

  • I'm sure you'd be better off googling this for images too.. or talk directly to your piercer.

    Duh.

  • A monroe is a piercing above the lip to look like Marilyn Monroe's freckle.

  • Did you get it in the back of a bar in Wildwood, NJ?
    Yes, its infected. Ask your mommy to take you to the doctor tomorrow.
