How long will the swelling last?
ANSWER #8 of 10

a keloid s a hard lump that usually stays for a few months before going away
and they dont usually appear on the lip
the most common places to get a keloid are the nose, bellybutton and ear
also make sure you wait at least 3 months before changing the piercings or taking them out
as thats the amount of time they need to heal
and taking them out befre than can prolong their healing time

ANSWER #10 of 10

Aaah no worries (:
People react different. When I pierced my lip it didn't really swollen, and everything was alright. But later on when friend of mine pierced her lip, her lip swollen, and she had problems with eating for the next couple days, but after that everything was OK.
There is a big chance your lip has swollen cuzz you pierced your lip on both sides (snakebitez), so reaction is stronger ofcourse.
Well I advise you to wait for a day or two and your lip should be fine, if not.. go to the place where you got pierced (you have to do that anyay, cuzz they have to shorten up your piercing stick if you know what I mean -.-) .. just ask them for more advices.
