Specializes in Pain Management

You have 2 separate conditions. 1. Bleeding gums can be a sign that you are at risk for, or already have, gum disease. See your dentist. 2. Seasonal flu is very common viral infection. Usually the condition resolves on its own with home care. Drink water and get a good rest. Nsaids (e.g. Aleve) are also recommended every 6 hours for pain. If concerned, see your pcp.
