Couldn't find what you looking for?


I got my tongue pierced today & when I went to clean it. There was yellow puss coming out from the bottom of the piercing. Is it infected that quick?


Hi, Gabby!  Is the area more sore than it was when it was first pierced?  If so, it is infected.  Pus wouldn't be coming from your piercing otherwise.  You will probably need to go to the doctor to get antibiotics for your tongue infection.  The needle and/or the post was probably contaminated when you had the piercing done so it became infected a lot quicker.  Keep it clean until you get to the doctor.  Make the appointment as soon as possible.

Has anyone else had an infection from piercings? Did you try to treat it at home instead of going to a doctor for it?
