Swelling afer lip piercing

I got my lip pierced Monday night and I had the usualy swelling but it went away on Wednesday. Then this morning my lip was huge! Its pretty swollen and it hurts a little. I have taken Advil and put ice on it. It looks better but is still pretty swollen. Is this normal? Should I be concerned?

  • dissolve sea salt in some warm water and dab it all over the inside and outside ever hour with a qtip. spin the jewelry around so it gets in the piercing too. if its infected that should take care of it pretty quickly
