In brief: Tylenol (acetaminophen)

Tongue piercing comes w continued pain as well as swelling, tenderness, bleeding ; bruising for around 5 days.
If the swelling makes it difficult to breath then you need emergent medical evaluation to ensure that your airway does not become compromised. If the tongue is seeping drainage that is other then white-colored or that is malodorous – then please seek medical care for a possible infection.
