If you have puss then it is infected. Other signs of infection are swelling and redness. You need to clean it with peroxide and see a doctor. You probably will need antibiotics to get rid of the infection especially being exposed to as many germs as the mouth is. (CONTINUE READING)

Ok, professional piercer here. These people don't know what they're talking about. FIRST, NEVER EVER put peroxide on a piercing, if it turns out NOT infected, then you've just created an unnecessary problem by drying out and irritating your piercing. Swelling and redness happens with every lip piercing but excessive amounts shouldn't be ignored. If you have a little bit of white puss, I'm talking a very minimum amount that forms crusts at your piercing, then it's not infected. but if it is green, don't put ANYTHING on it and head to the doctor to get antibiotics (and if he wants to put peroxide on it then let him). DO NOT take the jewelry out if you suspect an infection, if you take the jewelry out the infection heals inside of your body which can cause major trouble in the long run. If you do get an infection, after getting some meds, notify your piercer and file a report with your state's health inspector.

How do you stop your lip piercing from getting white puss?

Well if your piercing was done by an experienced professional body piercer that would have been explained to you in some detail. But this is clearly not the case, the white "puss" as you call it is lymphatic matter. Your body generates this as it heals the piercing. You shower every day and clean your piercing and in the process this white "puss" is removed. Your body generates more as the day goes on and you repeat the process of cleaning the piercing and removing the newly generated "puss" the following day. Each day the amount of the white "puss" is reduced indicating that the piercing is healing. Now the "puss" as you call it is not puss, so lets not call it that. Puss is defined as being greenish and is an indication of a possible infection. This discharge** ( **the whitish stuff ) you are dealing with is just the normal discharge seen in all healing piercings. So relax, all is fine, you shall live another day to clean your piercing.

Can you get your lip pierced if you have infected gums?

You can but you absolutely shouldn't. Your body is already working overtime trying to get rid of the infection and it wouldn't be able to handle a new piercing. The infection could get worse and the piercing would take longer to heal. A real professional body piercer wouldn't do any form of piercing lip or otherwise if you are fighting and infection. A gum infection is due to poor oral care, the chances of a secondary infection setting into the new piercing is very high. Get your infection under control and healed then consider a piercing once your dentist and doctor say it's safe to proceed.
