Possible Complications in Tongue Piercing Closure
Many tongue piercings heal without any problems, but complications occasionally occur. These include persistent swelling, infections, and scarring.
If the piercing is not adequately taken care of, infections may develop. Persistent redness, swelling, pain, and unusual discharge are indicators of disease. It’s critical to get medical help if these symptoms are present.
If the piercing is irritated or if an allergic reaction to the jewellery happens, there may be persistent swelling. After a few days, if the node hasn’t decreased, it would be wise to consult a professional.
Scarring may result if the piercing is not given enough time to heal before removing the jewellery. This may result in a more extended closure and even call for medical attention.
