    Default Can swelling be delayed?

    I got my philtrum pierced on Monday and it's been steller up until today when I woke up looking like pete burns!
    I've had 4 other lip piercings in the past and I always swell up straight away so this seems odd.
    maybe I knocked it in the night?

    I've had piercings swell weeks after piercing. It's usually because I've knocked/irritated/slept on it, but I also take ibruprofen for the first few days, which would reduce swelling.

    I'd say it's normal. =)
