Dentist 's  Response
hello, bleeding and swollen gums are mostly caused by local irritational deposits around your teeth and sometimes nutritional deficiency too.
for bleeding gums ,you should consult a dentist, who will perform professional cleaning of your gums and will advice you gum paints and multi-vits..vit-c and vit-B along with antiseptic mouthwash.
maintain your oral hygiene with brushing twice daily along with flossing to prevent its recurrence..
if your throat still hurts after 7 days of following all advise then you should consult ENT surgeon.
if your age is around 18-25yrs, then erupting third molar can be the cause of pain in throat..
as the tooth erupts your pain will subside..
meanwhile use sensitive/soft toothbrushes,antiseptic mouthwashes, give finger massage to your gums with astringent and increase your Vit-B &C intake via citrus juices and fruits..
take care..

your case needs to be checked by a periodontist. he will easily assist you with your case. in the mean time you can use warm saline water gargles, a mouth wash three times a day and some anti inflammatory drugs. regards.
