Concerned about a lump around piercing on inside of mouth...

    Hi there! I got my lip re-pierced close to 2 months now and it's not the first time I've gotten my lip pierced in the same spot, so I know there's probably gonna be some scar tissue to go through. I don't know, honestly. But my problem is that there's this lump around my labret post on the inside of my mouth and it's pushing the post against my tooth. It doesn't hurt or anything, but it's just rather annoying. I asked my piercer about this and he said that it looks like it's from continuing to use mouthwash even after the healing period was over. Also the mouthwash has no alcohol in it, but has fluoride in the mouthwash. I'm not sure if having fluoride in it is causing the problem or not, but I felt I should mention it in this post. He said that I should stop using mouthwash so that's what I did about a week ago. I asked him if I should use sea salt with water to see if that could speed up the healing process, but he said that I don't have to use anything because he feels the piercing is healed already. Like I said, it doesn't hurt or anything like that, but the lump is kinda annoying. I'll have photos attached to this post, but I'd like some feedback on this from people that use this site. Thanks for reading

    Welcome to the Painful Pleasures (PP) community! Please take a moment to tell us a bit more about yourself in the Introduce Yourself area. Also, please read the Rules of the Forum at your convenience.

    The gallery is available for viewing or posting. Without a login you will be able to see non-mature content, but you will not be able to post there or view mature content.

    If you have any questions about the forum or gallery, feel free to reach out to me or our other moderators, Angel on the Edge, Rainbird, Craftsman and xXJarredXx.

    To keep out unwanted spam messages, all new members must have their first 3 messages approved (vetted) by the moderators before they can post freely.

    The forum has undergone some recent changes. Many were for the good, but it also introduced a bug. When an unvetted member posts to an existing discussion, it does not show up as other posts do. If a fully vetted member posts, the section they post in is highlighted and the thread list has a green dot next to the thread they post in. Also if you click on "new posts" it will show up in the list. Unvetted members do not show at all. The only time an unvetted members post show is if they create a new thread and even then it's not very easy to find. PP is working on getting this fixed, but it may take some time.

    If you post to the forum for help and you don't get a reply you are not being ignored. Please send a private message and include a thread link.

    That looks like scar tissue to me. Some scars continue to grow for a while and can end up looking like what you have. This kind of thing isn't the easiest to deal with, but there is a product that PP doesn't sell called a Nopull piercing disc. It is made from a type of silicone and is known to heal the dreaded bump. I can't give you a direct link so search for the name I mentioned.

    Let us know how you make out.
