    This happened to me when I first got mine done. your lip is swelling, if you dont already you may need to get a bigger labret for it. That’s what I had to do. my skin completely covered the metal plate inside of my lip and i had to push it back through.

    White puss? Boy, those lip piercings are really attractive!

    I had the same problem with my vertical labret piercing. My piercer told me to put a drop of Gly-Oxide (you can get it at Walgreens for $13.99) on it 3 x’s a day for 2 weeks. I did that & it took care of it after one week. The puss will eventually quit on its own, but the Gly-Oxide will heal the white skin surrounding the jewelry.
