what does it mean if you got a monroe piercing and the side of your face begins to swell?

ok, so about 3 or 4 days ago i self pierced my monroe (well technically they're angel bites but i got the first one done professionally about a year or two ago) and now i was just drawing when i noticed the side of my face was sore and touching it it felt almost like a bruise or like there was a bit of pressure there and i found it to be slightly swollen! i'm a little terrified as to what this could mean for this is the first time i ever self pierced anything besides my nose and ears D:now truthfully i'm unsure if it's because of my monroe (angel bite?) or because when i was cleaning it i got the idea to push the salt water through the hole to try and flush it out a bit thus putting pressure on the back side of my cheek (that's where the pain/swelling is primarily) so in a fit of panic i just took the ring out and I'm not sure if this may pertain to it but i am a diabetic and prone to infections (shut up! the self piercing seemed like a good idea at the time ok!? i'm a teenager! we tend to have major lapses in judgment!) but i just read up a lot on things to expect after an oral/monroe piercing and there doesn't seem to be anything abnormal going on with it's healing process...PLEASE HELP!!!!!! D: also (for the sake of my own comfort TT~TT) i think it important to point out that it only got this way AFTER i attempted to clean it like that :( the first three-two day i just soaked it in salt water and only now did i push it through...

    Sounds like an infection. Best thing to do is see a doctor.

    Hm, sounds like an infection is beginning to start.
    The best thing to do is see a doctor, or go see a professional piercer and get their professional opinion..Just be prepared for the lecture about doing it yourself :p
