Is My Tongue Piercing Infected?I've had my tongue piercing in for over 10 years, and recently I took it out due to an operation. After a month of it out, I've decided to put it back in. However once in, my tongue instantly swelled up and a massive hard lump formed around the hole. One big lump, from top of the piercing to the bottom of it, and due to the pain, I had to take it out again. It feels like scar tissue has been agitated and it hurts a lot. So not sure if it could be an abscess or just an irritation and it will go away, or I actually need to seek help? Shall I put it back in and see if it goes down or leave it out?
