Nope mine never did, you're supposed to keep it very clean, even after it heals.

I don't know, but I would put a little peroxide on it.  Just don't swallow it.

Mine never got infected, but it was an overall pain, while healing. You basically have to learn to eat again, LOL. Mine closed up about a year ago, and I'd never do it again.

Mine never did, but if you have green stuff coming out of it, it's infected. Make sure you use mouthwash frequently. Don't chew gum, cuz it raises your chances of infection. I've had mine done 3 times, and as long as I did the mouthwash thing I was good. If you think it is infected, go to the dr!!!

ok, when did you get your toung pierced?  is it oozing any puss? give the details. rinse with diluted listerine every time you eat , smoke, drink, if anything goes in your mouth rinse. if you dont have listerine on hand use salt water (warm)  and as soon as you can go back to your piercer or if it is really bad head to the ER. they will be able to help :) if the barbell is to "toght" meaning they put a barbell thats too small that could be causeing discomfort and they would have to switch it out for one long enough. i hope im helpin you. :)

 never did i have mine done but my ex did. Yes it can get infected if food gets into it or dirt/germs. All to do it rinse with antiseptic anti-bacterial and it should make it better! That and salt water gargles.
