white residue in mouth

I have started to notice over the last few days that I have a white residue on the inside of my mouth on the join between my lips and my gums, this comes away quite easily when cleaned off but builds up again later. My gums have also become quite red and are slightly painful when I brush them, although they do not bleed. I am only 20 so do not have dentures but do have piercings in my lip and wondered if these could be irritating my gums? I am using corsodyl mouthwash to try and fix this but can anyone tell me what this might be and what I can do to prevent this from happening?
