Such sore swollen gums can be due to gingivitis,infections,malnutrition and vitamin C deficiency,pregnancy or sensitivity to toothpaste or mouthwash .
Take vitamin C supplements for some days and change your toothpaste brand and avoid using mouthwashes if your swollen gums are caused by sensitivity to toothpaste or mouthwash.Also have good oral hygiene.
If the symptoms persist then pls consult a dentist and get gingivitis ruled out.
Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted if you have any additional queries.
Thanks for the reply. I do take vitamin C every day. I'll try getting off moutwash. As far as gingivitis, if I do have it, how do i treat it? Is there some over the counter drug I can take, or maybe a home remedy?
Gingivitis can be prevented through regular oral hygiene that includes daily brushing and flossing.You can also rinse your mouth with a saline solution.You can also use anti inflammatory drugs.If the symptoms persist then antibiotics like metronidazole are needed.Pls don’t worry as it is completely treatable.
Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.Warm regards.

My son has these same symtoms: Here are Coles symtoms: he had a high fever (102.9)for two days, sore throat and swollen glands- fever went down to low grade (99-100.9) for the next three days he also got swollen red gums, blisters on his lips, and loss of appetite- probably because his mouth hurt so much- today is day 6- no fever- gums still red and swollen (dentist said to rinse w salt water), blisters Still evident on lip and tonight right after he brushed his teeth he threw up and had diarreah. The only thing he ate today was soup and some frozen yogurt. I think he may need antibiotics. Something's going on
