Holy infected piercing!-BIG UPDATE!

Posted by   + Show Post
5/9/12 update:
My lip had to be removed...no, lol totally kidding.
I'm so excited! I saved it and it's soooo much better. I'm still taking my antibiotic. But I went to the studio where I got it done and we changed it to a horse shoe and they said it looks fantastic. I added a photo in the replies :)!


New Update:
HOLY FUCK WAD! The doctor just took it out. Hemostats on both side. My gawd!!!!!! He pushed on it and (i lol'd) puss shot out. He wasn't ready for that. I didn't mean to laugh and it didn't get on him. His reaction was priceless. It's MUCH more swollen now only from the tugging. It took him about 10 mins to get it out.
I'm at the hospital pharmacy getting my antibiotics.



Update:
Yeah, all my attempts have failed. I'm at the ER waiting feeling defeated. Once it heals, I'll try again. Not sure wtf happened. I have my tongue done (had it done twice), my nose, I had a monroe but took it out for work. My ears are pierced numerous times and this has never happened before. I'm pretty annoyed. Oh well. I'll update when it's out.


Holy crap dudes!

I got my lip pierced Sunday and for the past 3 days it's been really bothering me because it's been getting irritated from constantly getting suck on my tooth when I eat and when I say certain words. I upped my aftercare regimen.

Well, this morning my dog woke me up barking and I was laying directly on it, arm pushed up on it and all!

I go to wipe slobber off my face which I thought was odd since I don't usually drool in my sleep unless I'm sick.

When I wiped it off...BAM! I feel my lip. My cheek and lip are insanely swollen! If i try and speak, you can't understand anything I say.

I took 4 ibuprofen for the swelling and pain and have had ice on it for over an hour. I looked in the mirror and there is definitely puss drainage coming out.

I'm going to try all day and tomrrow to save this piercing but if I can't...it's gotta come out.

In the meantime...anyone know what I can do??

Here's my regimen:
-Wash it with warm water and Dial soap 4 times a day.
-Antiseptic mouth wash after eatting
-Sea salt water 7 times a day sprayed inside and out.

Anymore suggestions? Pic in reply btw.

That looks like a very nasty infection. I would take out the piercing and get to the dr asap because you look like you could definitely need an antibiotic.

No matter how clean they are, or you are trying to be, there is always that risk for infection. Don't let this go anymore at all. Take it out, and go straight to a doctor. You need antibiotics asap!

You need antibiotics!!!! ASAP!!! Done take it out yet until you get in those the infection can spread if the hile closes up. It has somewhere to come out at the moment. My nose got infected when I first got it done and I was told not to take it out. You definitely need to get to the doctors though!
