Is it normal to lose taste on the tip of your tongue after a piercing and is this permanent?
Losing Taste After a Piercing I Think You Should Visit A Piercer Or Ask A Doctor About That, Ive Never Herd Of It Doing That. New Answer Headline I just got my tongue done about 5 days ago, and for a bit you might notice some loss of taste on the tip of the tongue. Ive got a bit of that right now too. give it time. maybe about 2 or 3 weeks and it should go back to normal. worse comes to worse, see a doctor about it.
Was this answer useful?
Thanks for the feedback!
No. You need to go see a doctor or back to the piercing shop & have the piercer who did it take a look at it to see what happened.
You need to stay away from dairy and beer and cigarettes for about 5 days even if you feel fine, because they can cause a nasty yeast infection in your mouth called thrush. Wh…en I got my tongue pierced, I stuck to soft foods for about 2 days, and was eating normal foods but no dairy by the third day. Within a week you should be fine. Definitely switch to a shorter barbell as soon as you possibly can - it will make it much easier to talk and eat. I have a terrible lisp with a 5/8" barbell so I got a shorter one, and I'm very comfortable at 1/2"
it is totally normal when you have a tongue piercing to get a kind of discharge, it's the body's way of healing itself. This normally appears for 1-2 weeks. If it carrie…s on see your doctor, but it should heal on its own.
yes it is i was worried about that too, it takes a while for that to go away but eventually it becomes painless and will go away all together, also i had a white bump on the h…ole that eventually dried up and disappeared too. just keep it clean
It is normal but if it is particularly painful or has pus coming out of it then you should see a doctor. You should also see a doctor if it doesn't go away.
No Thrush occurs when the oral bacterial balance in your mouth is out of whack, this can be caused by over using antibacterial or antimicrobial mouth washes too much. To…ngue piercing aftercare is simple, cool stuff as much as possible as often as possible (that's freezies, slushies, crushed ice, chamomile ice cubes etc.). That doesn't include dairy products (milk, yogurt, sour cream, ice cream or any milk products) which tend to leave a coating on the tongue which can annoy a new piercing. Oral rinses like good old school Listerine, yep the awful tasting yellow stuff is perfect to use as a post piercing rinse. Here's why unlike antimicrobial and antibacterial rinses which can cause a oral malbalance, Listerine suppresses the bacterial and microbial counts evenly without throwing things for a loop. Besides you are only going to rinse after meals, between those periods just good old *cold water works wonders (*should do this after having a smoke). So now you know a bit more, Happy Piercings.
Answer I got my tongue pierced exactly 1 week ago, and I'm going through the same thing. In fact I was online searching to see if anyone else has come across this while… their tongue heals.. My guess is it's a combination of the "dead cells" collecting that I've read about, along with the fact that a tongue piercing can cause your mouth to overproduce saliva while it's trying ot heal itself. This is why you have to swallow twice as often now, and the saliva seems almost "thicker".. and coats your tongue more than usual. - At least this has been my experience. Maybe this is what's causing the "white tongue" like I have too? ANSWER If you have been using a lot of mouthwash or if you your has been getting dry on top, it is most likely thrush, which is a yeast infection of the mouth, try diluting your mouthwash 50/50 so it doesn't kill all the good bacteria.. also you can go to your doctor and he or she can give you a pill, a one dose treatment for yeast infections. I just went through this, in fact a took the pill a few hours ago.. but you want to get rid of it fast because it can spread down your esophagas and throat.
It shouldn't have split, no. But it's often caused by playing with the bar too much. It should heal up quite quickly if you leave it and are careful when eating.
the sweet taste buds
Not really. It's best to get that checked out to make sure it isn't an infection... In the long run, that can do some damage.
Piercing Pain Getting your tongue peirced in the first place is dangerous considering there is a major nerve that, if hit, would render your tongue completely dead. How…ever, the fact that you can feel anything (even pain) is a good thing. It may be infected or just still hurting from the pierce. If it starts to puss, get to a doctor for an antibiotic. well, not trying to be rude--but if he/she is asking this question, they have already made up their mind and has their tongue pierced. And no, pain months after, is NOT a good thing. I have had mine done 2 weeks and it doesn't hurt a bit! Just a little funny colored and sometimes swells, but it doesn't hurt! And all the information I have read and gathered from my peers agree that a tongue piercing usually heals in 4-6weeks...after healing there should be NO pain. My advice is to go talk to your piercier. __________________ Any piercing ON ANYONE may take several months to heal COMPLETELY! Most cases it should take a tongue piercing about 6-8 weeks to heal completely; some take longer, like myself. My tongue piercing took about 3 months to heal completely. Some peoples immune system might not be efficient enough to heal adequately or as quick as the average person.
The tip of your tongue can only taste sweet things, no others eg bitter, salty, sour.
yh don't worry about it i got ym tongue pierced about a month ago and the first 10 days i had puss coming out but don't worry because when you get your downsize it stops. k. …________________________________ i got mine done todayy and it didnt hurt. but now it does. but it didnt puss. but ayee. i just got it pierced like 2 or 3 hours agooo. (:
Sure. You just poked a hole in a unnatural place and stuck a bar through it. It seems that stinging is a reasonable response from your body.
Yes. You've just had a big hole punched through it! the good new is that tonuges heal very quickly.
Do you mean that the piercing hole itself has stretched? Its possible that you pulled the bar or played with it too much and it caused a tear but that seems unlikely for only …having it for two days. Maybe it just seems like its stretched because the swelling has gone down a bit. Since i cant see it for myself and dont really understand what you mean by stretching, I suggest that you go and sow your piercer and have them help you out :)
Permanent Lisp from Piercing? no it can heal Answer A person tends to adjust when they add objects or take objects away from the mo…uth. Unless you loose use of, or loose an organ such as your tongue or voice box or any other necessary organ for speech, you will learn to speak with the obstruction.
