Thanks for posting your query.

Fever and pus discharge are the common features associated with tooth eruption.

But,in your daughter's case,gums are terribly inflammed resulting in bleeding.

I would advice you to visit a dentist and get detailed check-up done.

Plenty of fluids as well as nutritious diet has to be taken.

Vitamin c as well as iron supplements has to be administered.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your query,
Your child is having gingival abscess and this is the cause for fever, discharge of blood and pus and bad smelling of mouth and swelling of gums. So consult your Pediatrician as antibiotic and analgesic are required and for Pediatric Dental surgeon as the drainage of pus required from the abscess for fast relief .
