How long does it take for a lip piercing to heal?

I had my lip pierced a week ago and now it hurts.

do not twist/touch/play/change your piercing until it heals. it takes between 2-4 months for a external oral piercing to heal completly. clean it 3times aday. rinse with a non-alcohol mouthwash after eating/drinking/ect. taking IBprophan can help with pain and swelling. after washing your face rinse piercing well for several min.

It generally takes a lip piercing around 6-10 weeks to heal. It is rare for lip piercings to get infected because the mouth has some of the best defenses against bacteria. A great website to check out for extra information on a lip piercing is: bodypiercing. ygoy. com/aftercare-of-lip-piercing/ (Without spaces)

The healing time of a lip piercing is usually between two and three months in length. If its hurting still you probably need to clean it more often with an antibacterial ointment. Another thing to practice is not to touch it often, or it may get bacteria into the area and cause an infection.

It varies for different people. You have to clean it daily and make sure to twist it around too. I'd say let it be and don't play with it.

I have had my lip and labret pierced numerous times, it generally swells up for a week then once the swelling subsides the soreness should subside, (if cleaned properly) to clean it make a saline solution boil water, put into a cup then add a tea spoon of sea salt (not table salt the additives will irritate the piercing)
