Removing a Possibly Infected Tongue Piercing?

I got my tongue pierced 5 days ago and I have decided that I want to take it out, but I think it's infected. My tongue is discolored in a yellowish color and something white came out of the wound and it smells and it hurts slightly. There's no redness and it's not overly swollen, but I am still worried. Should I just go to my local piercer to ask if it's possible to take it out? My only concerns are that they won't see that it's infected and then take it out. I heard you should never take it out if it's infected.

I would remove the piercing and see a doctor if it is infected

Personally, with what you describe (especially a smell and a yellow discharge) I would go to an urgent care or my PCP ASAP. If you start to get a fever, I would go to the emergency room. Infection is nothing to mess around with.

I worry about these things and am all about safety first.

Prayers for healing!! Post back with an update.

Forget about returning to the piercer. Get yourself to a doctor!
