Copied from otherpost

Piercing yourself was kinda stupid.Going to a professional means it is done correctly and is clean.

Do you have a labret bar in your piercing?
was it autoclaved beforehand?
did you wear gloves and use a clean needle?

The aftercare you are doing is wrong.The mouthwash you should be using should be alcohol free and disinfectant shouldnt be used to clean piercings.... i really doubt it is safe to have in your mouth.

You should do warmsea salt soaks ( no idodine to harm the piercing) 3 times a day with hot compresses.Alcohol free mouth wash may be used aswel.No smoking and no drinking alcohol.No kissing because that will cause bacteria to get into your piercing.

If you are concerned about the piercing then go to a piercer to get it checked out.Piercing yourself can cause problems including nerve damage.Pain and swelling should last nomore than 2 weeks in my opinion.

i'd never have the guts to pierce any part of my body myself. rather pay the money and visit the shop.
