Keeping this in view, why is my skin growing over my lip piercing?
Embedding occurs as a result of your body allowing the skin to grow over the top of a piercing. In simple cases, it can be caused by swelling from an initial piercing occurring to a degree which means that the jewellery you were pierced with is now “too short” to accommodate the swelling.
How do you hide a lip piercing hole?

The retainer is smaller than a stud and designed to hide your piercing while keeping the hole filled. You should never use a retainer in the first few days after getting your piercing. Always keep the piercing filled with jewelry or a retainer while it’s healing.

Cause of the Smell
Sebum is secreted by the sebaceous glands in the skin. … Mix sebum with some dead skin cells and a little bit of bacteria, and you get some really potent smelling piercings! The discharge is semi-solid and smells like stinky cheese. At its worst, you can even wipe this thick discharge off your plugs.
Most people never notice it, so I would say that if you got your lip pierced the scar would barely ever be noticeable! … Had my lip piercing out for 6 years, I still have the smallest hole, but the inside of my lip is completely healed.
If infection is suspected, never remove the jewellery until after the infection and piercing fully heal. removing the jewellery traps the infection inside. The skin can heal over the infection, preventing fluid from draining. This can lead to an abscess and a more severe infection.
If a piercing is fully healed, you’ve had the jewelry in place for longer than a year, and you take the jewelry out, chances are very good that the hole will shrink, but not close completely and look as if it were never there. You will likely always see a small divot where the jewelry was placed in the skin.
