Long tissue hanging from the piercing on tongue, tip looks white and the rest pink. Remedy?

I have had my tongue pierced for about a year now and when I was cleaning my tongue ring I noticed that there is this long form of tissue hanging down coming from the piercing it s self. It looks like the tip is white and then the rest is pink. It has not ever been there before and I cant really feel much in it so I was wondering what I can do to remove this thing. Thanks

Welcome to health care magic forum.

I have read your concern.

First of all let me advice you not to undergo for Practises such as tongue piercing,since it is not a healthy treatment option.

I would advice yo to apply Anesthetic gel on the affected area.

Usually in such cases,Ciprofloxacin along with analgesics has to be administered.

If possible,get the tongue ring removed.

The tissue hanging could be due to severe inflammation.

Maintain oral hygiene well.

Swish with lukewarm saline frequently.

Hope this helps.
