I got my piercing 5 days ago it’s still a little swollen. But my worry is that its white is that normal does that mean its healing and theres a little flap of skin over one of the openings .What should i do and what does this mean.

Thanks

The whiteness and tissue you are seeing are fairly common with this type of piercing. The incredibly soft nature of the frenulum tissue makes it prone to irritation from moving jewelry. Most likely both the whiteness and the excess tissue will go awa as the piercing “toughens up” a bit.

The one thing to keep an on eye is the tissue build-up. A little bit of it is no problem. But if it seems to become excessive, a trip to your piercer, and a possible jewelry change, may be in order.
