Getting tongue pierced with tonsilitisWatch
Have got quite a nasty case of tonsilitis at the moment, on about day 3 now - very sore throat, swollen tonsils and white patches on my tonsils. I'm on antibiotics (phenoxymethypenicillin) for 7 days (started today). It hasn't affected my tongue at all.
I've wanted to get my tongue pierced for a long while and I'm driving my friend to get his tattoo done tomorrow, so thought I could coincide. I'm a fairly heavy smoker too and they say you should cut down after you get your tongue pierced and also drink mostly liquids, 2 things that I'm already doing with this tonsilitis. Either it's a really bad idea to get it pierced and risk an infection whilst I've already got tonsilitis or it's prime time in terms of the aftercare (not smoking/eating).
Anyone got any advice?
Also you shouldn't just cut down on ****, you should completely stop. Does not help it heal.
You can always get it pierced at a later date and go off smoking for a bit then. That is flexible, your tonsillitis isn't.
