    Default White skin forming around lip stud? Help!!!

    I've had my middle labret for about 2 weeks and a few days, I've been using saline solution,diluted mouthwash and SSS. I noticed just today after school that there's a white portion of skin that's growing around my piercing in the inside of my mouth, what is this?! I was going to go to my piercer today but the shop was closed today, what do I do? My lip is still fairly swollen as it has been since day 1...

    Found a picture...this is pretty much what it EXACTLY looks like except my white skin is in the front of my labret disk. I repeat, this is NOT me. I found this pic off of google.

    When I run my tongue on the bar, I can feel the disk and its sides just fine. I can push it out and there seems to be 1m or 2m to spare. I think I may need to get it changed longer, my labret is 3/8. But I'm hoping it really isn't starting to embed?

    Could be just the healing or irritation - that area moves around alot and I think the lip has to get used to the jewellery. I had a white ulcer-like ring around my bar when I had mine done. Hurt bad so I used bonjela on the white area (but not in the hole). It soon went away. Also, you might be cleaning it too much, I pretty much LITHA after a couple of weeks.

    If it was embedding you wouldn't be able to push the disk off the back of your lip.

    I'd leave it alone, just rinse with water after eating and use SSS or well-watered-down mouthwash morning and night.
    what's a few seconds of pain for a lifetime of shiny?

    Mine did the same. The back of my labret is pretty well nested into my lip now, but not covered by skin. Some nesting is normal.

    Thanks all. I think it's just scar tissue building up, perhaps maybe because I tend to twi stthe disk in circles with my tongue, it's so addicting, I just need to leave it the hell alone. aha

    Update....does anyone know how to get rid of this? I've asked my friends who have lip piercings and they never had this white looking bump. I researched into it and it said putting Vitamin E on it would help, shall I try? I have been trying to do LITHA method, but recently I was playing basketball for P.E and the basketball straight hits me in my lip..which didn't help, so I've been being extra careful with it and using mouthwash a lot.
