Thanks for posting your query.
you seem to be suffering from fungal infection or Candidiasis. Candidiasis recurs in case of immune deficiency. Please avoid spicy foods totally. Medicines like Nystatin, Miconazole or Amphotericin B will be able to provide relief. Please use Vitamin C supplements. Please consult an oral surgeon. Use betadine gargles and avoid brushing hard. Take plenty of liquids because chewing removes the top most layer of the gums resulting in bleeding.
Wishing you good health...
