ANSWER #1 of 10

Well it depends on if you did it yourself or not, but the swelling that your experiencing is completely normal.

You should definitely not take out the piercing. The swelling should go down in about 3 days, so don't worry about it.

Lip rings take on average 3+ months to heal. and it's not advised that you change or take it out for at least 2 months.

Also taking it out will higher your risk of infection.

Puss is also completely normal (if you have any or get some) the body makes puss to help fight off infection.

Symptoms of an infected lip would be:

the swelling hasn't gone down after a week
it hurts a lot, even when you just slightly move it
change in color around the ring
...there's a lot of symptoms, and it depends on the person as well.

and more questions, just ask!

Lip piercing cost and how bad is the pain?
ANSWER #10 of 10

Yea, I got snake bite professionally done, and I got a bruise, too. It happens, they even said it happens. Use ice for about 2 weeks as much as you can. Just an ice cube on the bruised and swollen areas. Use salt water and a paper towel on the pierced area, and tada. Give it two weeks for bruising and swelling to be getting better. It happens.
