I would say that is perfect. Why on earth would you want pus or crusties? yes, that's perfectly fine. You still could get some though. It seems like it's the worst in the first month to 6 weeks of the healing period.

DO NOT PICK IT OFF WITH ANYTHING BUT WATER. when your in the shower then put your face in the water and the crusties should come off. when not in the shower use a sea salt solution. get non iodized sea salt and a warm cup of water put a teaspoon of the sea salt in it and mix it and dip a q-tip in and lightly move the crusties from around your lip piercing. If your talking about a healing piercing this is what you should do.
