tongue piercing infections
Sep 19, 2001

i pierced my tongue about two weeks ago im already eating but it looks like its geting infected. it has a very nasty smell everytime i take it off to wash it and every 20 min there is like a yellow-greenish nasty pus or so its nasty and my tongue is all swolen around the piercing....

Response from Dr. Feinberg

Your tongue is infected. Take the 'earring' out and see a doctor for antibiotics as soon as possible.

aids or hiv?
Neuropathy... or something else?
