I have my tongue pierced 5 times and have 16 other piercings. Is the bump right on the outside of the piercing? Build up of white "tongue tissue"? It is hard to explain what I am describing, but I am pretty positive I know what you are referring to. If so, it is just healing! After a few months, the bump will go away, I promise. If it doesnt hurt, then dont worry about it. It sounds as though this piercing is new. Please message me if you have questions.
I have the same thing I've had mine over yr n it just randomly started swelling and a bump showed up on the top near the ball hole and white stuff on the bottom near the ball hole I use salt water and tynol and byenadreal but it just seems to be getting worst and the pain is awful
I have a little white bump in front of my tongue pericing i got it 2 days ago is that normal ??
Go back to the place where you got your piercing and they can take a look at it and tell you if it is normal. If it gets sore or infected, go see a doctor.
Hey! I just got my tongue pierced about 5 days ago and there is this whitish, yellowish gooey discharge or idk something around the piercing, do you think thats normal?? I read that it can be just trying to heal and create a scab but I'm not so sure. I use non-alcoholic mouthwash so I wouldn't know what caused it.
Hey i got tounge done ask u some questions
Hi is white stuff meant to come out the bottom and swell
I did the snake eyes piercing an there is this white bump next to it an it hurts what can be done
If there is a dent where the piercing is at does it mean its infected? And its like a piece of white skin thats sitting up by the ring bit it doesnt hurt unless i accidently hit it and i got this piercing last week on Wednesday
I've had to take mine out. Then I would repaired it 3 days later to find blood and pus in it. Then after the jewelry popped it, the white bubble disappeared.
What if it just on the front of the tongue piercing?
I had my tounge pierced over two week ago and it feels like my tounge has gone hard where Ive had it done...is that normal? Like a healing process?
So I'm 14 I just got my tongue pierced I noticed this white/cream slimy stiff around my piercing, and I washed my hands and got a q tip and cleared it I then washed my hands again and squeezed my tongue more came out like a pimple?
It sounds like it might be infected. I would go back to the piercer and have them check it out. If you didn't go to a licensed piercer, go to your doctor.
I have a question about my new Tongue Piercing is it normal for it to look like the hole of my piercing is just a hair bigger than my Bar? Could it be from me biting down in the ball when I eat?

If you ever get a lump it will most like a kelod apply presher and it will go in a few days
Hi I just pierced my tounge on my birthday the 22 want to see if mine look normal
I have the same thing going on with mine also trying to find answers
Hi I am wanting to get my tongue pierced but am afraid that if i do it is going to hurt when I get it done or it is going to swell up for a few days or maybe even weeks and I am not going to be able to eat or drink with it. What is the results after you get your tongue pierced as in what happens after like the effects?
I had my tongue done last week it black and blue does that be ok
your response helped me. My tongue had that. But why is my mouth so irritated underneath. The area of tissue right by my teeth.
Please email me if you have any questions! These people responding have to experience with piercings. They do not know the phases piercings go to. Yes, it may share symptoms with other "illnesses" or whatever you call them. But it is perfectly normal, I promise you! When you get pierced, you are literally creating a hole/incision in your body. There are a lot of phases the healing process goes through. Even puss is normal. Its not actually puss, its just your body trying to kick out unnatural objects in order to close the wound. I have had that bump you are describing with several of my tongue rings.
Go back to the place where you had it pierced and ask their advice. My friend had a nose ring that did this. She had to remove it until it healed entirely.
So I have a snake eyes tongue piercing. I have had it for about 5 months or so. And on one side I have this white ball thats hard. Is this what your talking about? I mean I think it got irritated and then shortly after this happened. Will it go away. I dont like the way it looks. What do.... :(
Please email me. Ive got some questions about my tongue piercing. I got it done a month ago. I have snake eyes tongue piercing.
I would recommed going back to your piercer directly. They often have good advice about the healing process.
I had my tongue piercing 3 weeks ago and it doesnt hurt it just had a white hard bump around it and I have washed my mouth out with sea salt 3 times a day and been doing that for a week still not gone and it also red does anyone have any advice for me please
I have a small white bump by my tongue piercing that I got 3/4 days ago. I did it myself. It doesnt hurt, its not very swollen no pus or blood. Im keeping it super clean, just that little white spot.
I just got a tongue piercing last Saturday and today is Sunday so its been a week but since yesterday Ive been oozing white out of both sides of my tongue piercing and a little out the bar . I do sea salt rinse every time after I eat and listerine In the morning and before bed . I dont mess with it or touch it . The swelling is pretty much all the way down now but i havent went back to change the bar since Ive been oozing. Its not swollen but its just a little bit red near the bar and thats only because it tugs when I eat and I hurt it so I think its a little irritated especially since its still fresh . How long does the oozing last and when should I be concerned of an infection. I dont want to wait it out I want to be safe .
I would contact the place where you got the piercing for advice. They can probably take a look at it and tell you if it is healing normally. It can take up to 8 weeks to heal all the way, depending on the person.
If it gets more red, swollen or painful, I would contact a doctor to be on the safe side.
Is it bad if I pull that little ball off thats near the new piercing?... it came off easy with no bleeding? Should I have left it or leave it if it appears again?
It can be a displaced taste bud. It can be hypertrophic scarring. It can be normal scabbing. All of which will go away if you leave it alone and rinse after anything you eat/drink/smoke and be a bit patient.
It could be an infection.
An infection is usually hot &/or red &/or puffy &/or leaks stuff that's smelly and grey/green (not white/pale yellow). If you think you have an infection, see a doctor, but DONT remove the jewelry, as that will just trap the infection inside (sometimes doctors have to be "reminded" of this).
Don't take a chance....SEE A Doctor. GG Vi
Please see a doctor. do not wait, It sounds like MRSA(Staph) Make them do a blood test, this is serioous, even deadly.
Hey you all thank you for responding. But the bump or what ever that pimple was is busy going away. I just got mouth wash and a new toothbrush an expensive toothpaste and a new tongue ring so I am healing good. The problem was the tongue ring bar was to short and I kept playing with it. Thank you again, Nicole
