    Default Lip swelling around the back of my stud

    I got my lip pierced 2 days ago and everything was looking great. I absolutely love it. Its not infected i clean it every time i eat and i drink water. I use saline solution and Anti bacterial soap for the outside and then crest mouthwash alcohol free. Earlier today though i noticed a little bit of skin covering the edges and an imprint were the back of my piercing was. I wanted to know if this was normal or if i need a long stud. Or how to get the swelling to go down. I tried to call the guy who pierced it but they were already closed!!!!!

    Don't know about your imprint but ditch the anti bacterial soap.
    Sea salt soaks (saline) are more than enough.

    Looks to me like the bar needs to be longer, and when I had my labret, I never cleaned it after I ate. You're most likely over doing it with the cleaning but I'm happy to be corrected.
    I have.......
    Tongue, Nostril, Horizontal Nipples,
    In each ear......Daith, Lobe, Tragus, Anti tragus, Rook
    Retired Piercing: Labret
