I recently have gotten my tongue pierced about five days ago and its still very painful. My tongue has had a yellow/white ( more to the white side ) film over my tongue and an inflamed tastebud infront of the long bar but I eventually cleaned it completely off, it wasnt red anymore but it turned white so all the blood left it and it was just dead skin. Now it's just redish around the top piercing site but the bottom hole it completely fine no white secretions or anything. Ive been using sea salt water rise everytime I eat plus mouthwash in the morning and night ( Ive been trying to substitute it with salt water since my mouth has this white film over it ) what is wrong with my tongue? Or am i just paranoid and this is part of the healing process.
