Piercing Concerns

Hey guys,
I've been bulimic for a long time now and I've also had a my tounge pierced on and off for a couple of years. What I was wondering was do you think I should be taking my piercing out when I purge? I'm quite fastidious with cleaning it nightly but I'm just wondering if you think I should perhaps do more?
Like take it out while I purge or clean it more frequently?
I don't want to cause any infections or anything...

I used to have my tounge

I used to have my tounge pierced and I just used to leave it in. Never had any infections but I just decided to take it out in the end as it wasnt helping with the clattering against my teeth and wearing my teeth even more.

I wouldnt be too worried about if I was you and just keep cleaning it as you are. The tounge is the fasting healing area on the body so try not to fret too much xx
