Tongue piercing information ?

I got my tongue pierced 13 days ago, and on about day 9, swelling and pain was completely gone. But I noticed a bump in front of the bar. Its the same color as my tongue, and the top is sometimes white. Its a little tender, but not much. Im not able to go into my piercers shop for a while, but I called and explained it as best as possible and he said it might be an inflamed taste bud, but if it hasn't gone away in a few more Weeks than to come in when I can. I just wanted a second opinion. Does this sound like an inflamed taste bud? Or maybe a keloid? Thoughts please! And how do I make it go away? I use seasalt water once a day and alcohol free mouthwash twice a day. So suggestions??? Thank you! Link:

The bump that comes after some few days of piercing is caused by the dead cells on the area. This can usually go away after some weeks. You can use peroxide to clear them out. You can consult the piercer once you realize that it has not disappeared even after trying the methods.

This is not correct & could b dangerous if U wait& go back to the Piercer! Your infection, which seems tiny now could develop into a real health problem, c a Physician!

I have never seen the sense of piercing a tongue. I have a bit my tounge a few times. That is lots of pain.
To taste foods the tounge rubs around the food to slow taste to occur. I like to taste too much to do that to myself.

It hurts less than biting your tongue. And I can taste food exactly the same. If you're not going to try to help me with my question, than don't waste your time typing anything. Thank you (:

Sounds like U have developed an infected taste bud. I would suggest that you use Gly-Oxide, which is an oral antiseptic, instead of or at least in addition to the mouthwash. The salt water rinse will only help with the pain and may actually b irritating the wound. If the infection doesn't start getting better in 6-7 days of using the Gly-Oxide, you may want to c a doctor about some antibiotics. Any oral infection can get pretty nasty if allowed to run untreated, not something you want to risk!
