What is this hard bump next to my tongue piercing?

I had gotten venom bites about 3 months ago and the left one got infected and i had to take it out due to the pain. Than i got it re-pierced about 3 weeks after. The right piercing is fine and healed but the left is having problems. The problem: Okay, there is a hard bump to the left of the piercing hole and its causing me pain when i talk or chew. Its been about a month since i gotten it re-pierced and by the first month it should stop but hasn't. Here is a picture if anyone needs a visual. http://i831.photobucket.com/albums/zz238/victoorrr/tongue1.png I have been using Listerine mouthwash mixed with water. (Half mouthwash half water) I have also been using an antiseptic oral cleanser called Gly Oxide around both (top and bottom) holes. I want to know what it is and what i can do to make it go away. I would prefer not having to remove it again. Thank you.

    thats a healing bump. its a bump because your body isnt used to it and doesnt like it. it will heal on its own just frequently clean your mouth and do NOT pick at it thats the wort thing to do it can lead to infection and scars.

    I’ve always been told to NEVER use Listerine for piercings, and I never did. I’ve always used H2OCEAN for mine. It’s pretty much just salt water, which heals piercings good. Since it’s in your mouth, saliva also heals it quick too. Anyways, since you got it pierced twice only 3 weeks apart in the same spot, chances are the piercer had to pierce through the cartlidge bump cause by the healing of the piercing. The white stuff is actually scar tissue, it’s trying to reject it since it’s a foreign object in the body. It’s king of like when you pierce your ears, you take it out, it heals up, and there’s a bump there; well that’s what’s on your tongue. Just keep cleaning it right, put ice on it, and take medicine to help with the pain and you’ll be fine. :)
