Child have continuous mild fever, cold sores in mouth with bad breath, bleeding gums. What could it be?

My 2 year old daughter has been sick with a mild fever for about 3 days. She has cold sours in her mouth and bad breath. She went to a dentist 2-3 weeks ago and we were told she had healthy gums and teeth . Tonight while brushing her teeth her gums started gushing blood. Is this a virus? Any idea what it is or what we should do?

Thanks for asking the query,

Swelling in the gums indicates inflammation of gums known as gingivitis , it shows symptoms such as bleeding gums, redness and sensitivity.
Bacterial and viral infections leads to formation of fever cold sores.

Get clinical examination done by a Pedodontist,
Take tab flemiklox 250 mg thrice daily for three days.
Take symptomatic treatment, go for complete mouth scaling and polishing.
Brush her teeth twice daily with a soft bristle toothbrush, brush slowly in back forth and up and down motion and rinse her mouth after every meal.
Use antiseptic mouthwash gargles twice daily.

Hope this helps out.
