Mouthwash: the mouth rinse is aiding in cleaning the wound created by the piercing. since alcohol is "drying", it may irritate the area. If you are feeling no irritation, keep using it. next time try a mouth rinse that has no alcohol.

Or try not piercing your tongue. This can lead to chipped teeth as well as infections in the tongue.
