i have had my tongue pierced since the beginning of november. i had the piercer change the bar a while ago and i havent changed the bar itself since then. i brush my teeth a lot and i still use mouthwash when i can. i always make sure there isnt anything in or on it. when i push up the tongue ring, it hurts a little. its not a lot of pain, just enough to be uncomfortable. i am really afraid of my tongue getting infected so i i just really wanna know if it is or not and what i can do to make it stop. help?! :cry:
