The real answer is.
..Take that thing out! of course, you can take tylenol-type medications but you should avoid advil (ibuprofen) or Aspirin products. If you aren't feeling better within a day or so or you have swelling and pain, you had better see a doctor asap to ensure that it's not infected. The mouth is a dirty place so, piercing is strongly discouraged for this reason.
