    Gum disease I'd imagine.

    Go and see a dentist or treat it yourself which is what I do. I buy Corsodyl mouth wash its about £4 and can be bought in tesco, boots etc. This is what the dentist gave me to take. I often get problems with my gums don't be alarmed by the 'disease' :D

    I have weak gums - its a nightmare. Theres not much dentist can do if its just happened just a good mouth wash that might not taste too nice and brushing your teeth as you - The mouth wash makes a big difference :D

    Defo the above with sore gums too.

    I used it twice a day but more if maybe in day they hurt however I carried on using it as a daily mouth wash to keep my gums nice as I'm prone to this - really good stuff.
