Read your query, understand your concern this itchy gums can be due to viral stomatitis or gingival and periodontal ligament inflamation, for this you can do is do luke warm saline gargle two - three times a day.
You can apply ointment Gum paint like stolin or Acivir , and take vitamin B and C supplements by consulting with your local doctor .
Consult dentist for visual examination , scaling and root planning for healthy gums .

Hope it helps you.
If you have further query I will be happy to help.
