I've had my tongue pierced for 24 hours now. It feels like my tongue is a little numb on the sides/tip. Is this normal? My piercer isn't in today or I would ask him. If normal, how long will it last? It feels like a little of the swelling has went down. Not completely, but a little.
Also, I've heard conflicting information about what to gargle with. My piercer said to use non-alcoholic mouthwash, then after a week, cut it half and half with water. I've talked to other people who say all you have to use is salt water and that's what their piercer told them to do. What's the best stuff to use?
