Brief Answer: Gum bleeding may be due to gingivitis. Detailed Answer: Hi there , Welcome to XXXXXXX As you have mentioned you have been taking limcee tablets, which are actually vitamin C supplements used to treat gum bleeding caused due to deficiency of vitamin C. I suspect gum bleeding in your case is due Gingivitis. Your gums are might be inflamed due to deposition of the bacterial plaque and calculus deep in the gum pockets and on the root surfaces of the teeth. I suggest you to visit a dentist, get the complete subgingival deep scaling, and root planing done. Once the causative bacterial deposits are removed along with the course of medicines will improve your gum health with time and bleeding will be stopped. Meantime you can gargle with lukewarm saline or chlorhexidine mouthwash regularly, which gives soothing effect, and helps stop bleeding by preventing the microbial activity. I hope this helps, Take care, dr.farah XXXXXXX

Brief Answer: vitamin C helps in tissue repair Detailed Answer: Hello; Yes there is nothing harm in continuing with vitamin c supplements like lymcee for 2 weeks as vitamin c play a important role in healing and tissue repair and in turn reduces the gum bleeding. oranges;sweet lime;lemon juice;raw apricot are rich in vitamin c. Take care.

Brief Answer: get gingivitis treated. Detailed Answer: hi , one tablet per day is enough but since you have been taking vitamin c supplement from a long time i would suggest you to stop the course. As i have already mentioned you , visit the dentist and get your gums evaluated for gum bleeding , pocket formation and bone loss. scaling, root planing and deep gingival currettage will help you out. take care.
