It takes about a week, longest, for your tongue to go down fully. My piercings personally, they take a little longer. I would go to your piercer and see, but it sounds infected, and you should probably go to the doctor and get some anti-biotics. Do not take the piercing out! it will trap the infection in your body.

lol it's your tongue. it will swell for the next few days . mine still is and i got it done late last week. and the puss is white blood cells - normal for healing piercings. don't wory just keep rinsing with sea salt and water every time you eat, drink, or smoke to prevent infections

Hello,
its completely normal sometimes its the body's reaction mine pussed a bit. make sure you take care of it. brush your teeth all the time. when there's trauma to the tongue, usually it swells and it reacts. I've had my tongue done and had some taste buds swell as well. the absolutely best thing works 100% is the antibacterial Listerine mouth wash, the nasty brown kind. it will taste disgusting but it works extremely well, and i smoke as well so i know this is legit! for the best clean you wanna swish it in your mouth. after you eat, after you smoke, when you wake up and when you go to bed. when your swelling in your tongue goes down also put some in the cap (works better in the larger caps) and pretty much lap it up like a dog, or like your...doing other things. make sure you keep the plaque off as well as you can. soon you'll be good to go!
hope it helps!

I got my tongue piecred a week ago today. But I went to a shop and got it taken out 2 days ago because the swelling was so bad. The piercer told me that I was allergic to the metal. Its been 2 days and my tongue is still swollen and my tongue is like whitish yellow. And not to mention my bottom gums have like a white film on them and it hurts to even move my lip. Does this sounds serious? Or something I can deal with at home?

my dad said the yellow white stuff is dead white blood cells. the swelling should go down in 1 to 2 weeks. i just got mine done a day ago so im reading up on it.
