I got a tongue piercing and it's infected. Can't tell my parent so what do I do? I'm terrified, advice please?
I got my tongue pierced, and now it's infected, and I'm terrified it will grow huge and deform my mouth, or spread to my brain, or any of those other horrible possibilities. The infection is very small, maybe a large pin head? (o <- about that) Please give me advice on how to keep my tongue, and hopefully the piercing too. My piercer said she can either remove it now, while it's still small, or i can try washing it twice a day with sea salt, which is supposed to be a very good healer, and washing out with listerine at least 6 and hopefully 8 times a day. She says I should see results within a week, the sea salt is that quick, but I'm still so very nervous. If there is anything more that I can do, tell me :} Seeing a doctor isn't really an option.

Get rid of it no offence but togue piercings are weird,and if you get rid of it you wont get in trouble.

Seeing a doctor/dentist IS the only option!
One office visit AFTER you get the thing taken out by the piercer,( the doc won't know how to easily detach the thing) and an appropriate antibiotic will be prescribed.
The consequence of not following through with proper medical care is much worse than any $ or parental disapointment.

First if your not old enough to have your tongue pierced the person that did it sould be ashamed. But after that I had my tongue pierced and a similar thing happened she is right about the salt and Listerine but if it is turning any worse it week be obvious and you will have to tell your parents

If you have an infection and you can't go to the doctor and get an antibiotic without your parents knowing then you really have to tell them.They'll probubly find out anyway if the infection gets really bad. The infection could spread all over and get you really sick. Listerine and sea salt? You're probubly going to have to take the piercing out and let it heal. Can you get it done later? When you don't need your parents permission.

Just go to a professional piercing place. Even though you didn't get it pierced their they can tell you what to do. Also you can go to a clinic where you don't need insurance. Some tongue piercings can get really bad and be a threat to your breathing paths so get profeesional help from a doctor or a professional experienced piercing place.

Ha you should tell your parents. How old are you 12, 13, 2?
They may get mad, but honesty is a virtue. Always tell the truth. Do that or it'll spread to your brain. Just kidding. :-)
But yet I say tell your parents. Honesty = People like you better.

EARLOBES ARE ONE THING, THE TONGUE IS QUITE DIFFERENT. THE MOUTH HAS MORE TYPES OF BACTERIA THAN ITS OPPOSITE END.
FOR BEST RERSULTS TAKE THE PIERCING OUT AND LET IT HEAL.

Salt water is good but why can't you tell your parents? Do you honestly think they don't know (or aren't going to find out) about the piercing? Are you planning on keeping your mouth closed whenever they're around for the next 40 years!

Okay so you don't want to tell your parents...is there not an older sister or aunt or cousin or grandparent or school nurse or a friend's mum you could talk to?

If you're over 18 then what does it matter whether your parents approve or not...and, if you're under 18, then your parents should know cuz there are probably some questions that need to be asked of the person who did the piercing for you!

go to the doctor

Tell your parents?? First of all you must be 18 to get a piercing or have parental consent if not, so if the so called piercer pierced your tongue and you are not at least 18 or have a consent form signed they can be shut down if it is an actual shop. Second of all if it was one of your friends who did this to you then I would reconsider the friendship. Either way do you think even if it healed great and you live with your parents you can hide it from them forever? Get medical attention as soon as possible and forget the piercings.

Sea salt will help. Try and do what the piercer said but if it gets worse you must goto the doctor. You don't want to mess about with your tongues health.

Take the damn thing out of your mouth and gargle with TCP every 2 hours. If it doesn't clear up within 2 days thay I'm sorry but the doctor DOES become an option. Unless you want to get really sick!

WTF, are you twelve or what? If you can't take care of a piercing (it's not hard) then you shouldn't have one. You seem way too young anyway.

First... why is seeing a doctor or dentist not an option? It is the best thing for you to do! Keeping secrets from your parents is the wrong thing to do. Especially if it is keeping you from proper medical care. And if you have to keep it a secret, that must mean that you're too young to be making such decisions. That also means that a professional piercer was doing wrong in piercing your tongue if you are a minor.
Was it a smart thing to do, piercing your tongue? NO WAY! I've seen too many cases where people have developed mouth ulcers, infected abscesses in the tongue, broken teeth from biting absentmindedly on the bar and, the extreme, one case of cancer of the floor of the mouth.
Jewelry is not meant to be a mouth ornament!
Be smart... take the bar out and see a doctor. Get treated before it gets too bad. If you are so intent on body ornamentation, get a tattoo!

You have just learnt a lesson,don't get things pierced in the dirtiest part of the body.

Do what the piercer told you to do. It will probably heal faster if you take the piercing out and let it heal over. Just make sure you are VERY regular with the washings. If you still have doubts, talk to your school nurse.

Why can't you tell your parents??? You must be to young or something. I call that Karma.


grunt's wife
maybe you could try rinsing with peroxide. it will take a while. your parents will find out though so just get it over with if it bothers you that much.

wash your mouth out with peroxide and water as often as you can. sea salt is good for healing, too. it will heal faster if you take the stud out.


backwardsinheels
Gargle with Hydrogen Peroxide, listerine or salt water (1/8 tablespoon to 1 water bottle).

If it gets any worse...you MUST tell your parents and see a doctor.

see doctor and get some antibiotics for it.

Salt can kill germs. A saline rinse can be ordinary salt and water. It doesn't have to be sea salt. Listerine will also kill germs. You could try either one, but it doesn't get any better after awhile or gets worse, you probably will need to see the doctor.

Fess up, You got yourself into this, now get yourself out.

Tell your parents then see a doctor.

WELL INFECTIONS CAL LEAVE YOU WITH NO TASTE, NERVE DEADENING AND IT CAN GOT O THE BRAIN AND HEART. SO DO YOU WANT TO LIVE OR DIE? TRY HER WAY FOR A WEEK, THEN TELL YOUR PARENTS. YOU CAN'T GET TREATED IF YOU HAVE NO ID OR INSURANCE. SORRY. THINGS YOU SHOULD HAVE THOUGHT OF BEFORE LEAPING- THIS GOES UNDER.

Well u are probably busted ! But just try what u think is best for u ! Neva should have got that piercing . I think going to the doctor would be the best thing to do just tell them not to tell ur parents .


blowin_smoke
many people get an infection through piercings, listen to your piercer but if things only worsen within a week then you HAVE to see a doctor....but chances are you will be fine

Your taking a chance here.
An infection is an infection. Some can heal with rinses but some need antibiotics.

If you want to chance waiting and seeing if the sea salt and Listerine works then you can.
Otherwise you should tell your parents and get into the Dr. asap!
(If the infection spreads then you might end up with a horrific outcome, which you don't want. If it were me, I would bite the bullet and tell my parents. I would rather have a mad mom and dad then live without a tongue!)


Phydeaux
Nope.

Keep trying to get worthless medical advise from people you don't know until your toungue swells up and rots to the point the infection kills you, or they have to remove it.

Wait a week without antibiotics and see how it goes...and learn how to use sign language now before they remove your tongue.

TELL YOUR PARENTS AND GET IT TREATED!

Idiot.
