Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
Sore gums if this correlates with the timing of your cold could very well be related to this 'viral' infection. A cold is usually a virus, and this could also be the flu (also a virus).
So, you can take symptomatic medication such as Motrin, Mucinex, and sudafed.
