monroe question

Hi! So, I have had my monroe piercing for a bit over a month now, and I love it!! However, I'm a little concerned about something, and I don't know if I'm being silly so I wanted to ask you guys before going to a piercer (I'm currently on vacation). For the past few days (maybe 3 or 4) the inside of my mouth right around the stud has been a little inflamed and puffy and it also tastes differently than it did before. There's no pain however, and the outside looks healthy. There isn't anything gross coming out of the hole either. I stopped with the antiseptic and antibacterial mouth rinse a couple weeks ago but I am still really good about keeping it clean (I thought). The problem is that I can't just go and see my piercer because I'm currently in Amsterdam and then I'm going to Copenhagen in a couple days (I live in Switzerland). Can you just go into any piercing shop and ask their advice for free? Or would they be pissed off? I got some more antiseptic and mouth rinse and have recommenced that but don't see any change. Do you guys think I have an infection or am I just freaking out unnecessarily? Thanks!!!!
