    A lot. It can just keep splitting your lip and cause pain, make it painful in the upper register, and build up a callus and make it uncomfortable to play.

    Depends, if you dont like it then it will effect your playing because you will try not to have that happen. Find a Mentor to help you out.

    Try not to discuss the same topic covered in one post by you, in an unrelated post. Commonly, others will read these to find answers to THEIR questions, so it can be confusing for them to find an unrelated topic discussed in a thread they're searching through.

    You may build up tougher skin, I never had a problem with that affecting my playing when I had that happen as a result of braces. If you find that it affects your playing, you may want to visit a dentist to see if he can find the source of the issue, if it's not excessive pressure.

    You're doing it wrong.

    You shouldn't be regularly be puncturing your lip when you play.

    An internet forum won't be able to help you. You'll hear advice here about playing with "less pressure", people asking if you're "upstream or downstream", and lots of other things that wil confuse you.

    A real teacher who can sit with you and look at (and listen to) what you're doing wrong is what you need.

    Otherwise you're going to end up being that guy who mashes the horn into your face to play high and loud while cutting your lips.

    Simple as that. Dont pinch your lips to go high and use tons of pressure.

    I bought a new car and keep driving it into the wall...............

    Mariachi123, who is helping you get started? Experimenting until something about your playing is broken and THEN trying to figure out what went wrong is a recipe for frustration.

    Everything that you describe shows that you don't even know what the basics of playing are and have no command of the things necessary to make trumpet playing fun. You need a teacher. The sooner, the better.
