Strep infection: A strep infection can affect any part of the body. Rarely if ever have i personally seen a strep infection of the gums. If you have a strep infection, your doctor should have you on the appropriate antibiotic. If your gums remain swollen and sensitive after resolution of the strep infection, see your dentist. It wouldn't be a bad idea to see your dentist anyway in case you have some dental problem.
