  • you might have an infection....have you been using mouth wash like 5 times a day to try to keep the infection from happening I know that sounds excessive that is what my piercing guy recommends and after eating too.

  • What kind of jewelry do you have in it? Mine healed in like 10 days, but I changed the jewelry a few days after it was pierced. A friend of mine had to have help prying the ring out of his lip because it was too tight and his didn't heal for over a month, after he put different jewelry in.
