Hello and welcome to JA. Dr Saleem here. Will be answering you shortly
Well it sounds like a mild gum infection or gingivitis. You have been doing everything pretty alright . Just that you need to add an anti inflammatory like ibuprofen or naproxen in there. You can apply topical oral lignocaine solution for this . Trimcinolone orabase can help with the inflammation too.
If the swelling worsens or symptoms continue to bother you then a visit to the dentist is recommended.
I hope it helps.
Let me know if you have any more queries
Well it can take a few days , it depends how it responds . Sometimes it needs an antibiotic course too so you need to continue with these measures and hope for the best.
Always there for your help.
