What does an infected lip piercing look like?

I have my lip pierced in the middle. No, it's not a labret. It's higher and I have a captive ring in it. I don't know if it is infected or if this is just normal with new piercings. I need to know what it looks like when lip piercings are infected and if you have any pictures of it. Nothing extreme. Just what the swelling looks like on the outside and inside maybe. And how I should know when and if I need to take it out.
