Lip piercing is swollen, tingles, bubbles when peroxide is used. Is it normal ?

My lip piercing is a little swollen and it tingles just slightly if I touch it. It s a little red as well, but hardly noticeable. I ve only had them in for 13 days, almost 2 weeks. It doesn t hurt as all unless I m eating and open my mouth really, really wide. There is no pus , but when I use peroxide to clean it, it bubbles just a little bit but I always clean it till the bubblinh stops. Is the tingling and swelling normal?
