How to cure inflammation on the gums?

I have had a fever which is over now
and swollen tonsils
and swolen lymph glands
and I also have extremely swollen gums which came at the same time
Is there any way you can recommend to reduce the inflamation of the gums as it makes it nearly impossible to eat

Hi. Welcome to Healthcaremagic.
I read your query. Since you had fever, this can lead to inflamed tonsils, lymph nodes and gums. It is temporary though and comes down in a week or two. Swollen gums can also be due to medications you took. Just maintain good oral hygiene. There should not be plaque and calculus. Do warm saline rinses. Maintain good diet. Take multivitamin and minerals, specially vitamin C, A.
Massage your gums with gum paint for good blood supply.
If swelling persists or worsen, please visit dentist and get it checked. Get oral prophylaxis, blood test.
Hope the answer helps you. Thank you.

Hello. A few days ago I couldn\ t help but to move my back bottom tooth from side to side untill it got inflamed and started to hurt every time I closed the mouth. I had a flu at a time, which got better now, but gum is still painful. From yesterday I bought chlorhexadine and was rinsing my mouth with that. Do you know how long does it normally take for this kind of inflammation to get better? I am thinking of going to see the dentist , but as a student don\ t have that much money to spend. Thank you, Alex P.s. I just poured hydrogen peroxide on my tongue and it stings((

I have a Gum Abscess, how can i treat this? It is quite soft to the touch and has swollen profusely but retains normal gum color. My side of my mouth has swollen because of this as well. I do have a very rotten tooth right above it and Im guessing its the cause since its roots were sore to the touch.
