I have a lip piercing and I got a hard bump on the outside of my lip it's a little tender?

Infection: What you described suggests infection at the site of the piercing. It would help to remove the piercing. If that does not reduce the problem in a couple of days, it would be prudent to see a doctor.

Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
