dear veramac
gum infection has nothing to do with running nose, depends upon which part of the globe you are,if you r in U.S or Europe where no antibiotic is needed for running nose, as it is viral , in asian countries 'cos of possible super added bacterial infection antibiotic maybe required, However gum infection need to be addressed with mechanical removal of cause ( cleaning) and mouth rinses
