Prostatitis: only 30% of the cases are due to infection .the rest have no known cause and no known cure. Sometimes drugs that reduce prostate size or those that reduce the symptoms help. See your urologist .

Up to several weeks: Hand, foot and mouth disease is a viral infection caused by a strain of coxsackie virus. It causes a blister-like rash as the name states on the hand, foot and mouth. A person is contagious when the first symptoms appear and until the blister-like lesions disappear. It has been known to shed in the stool for up to several weeks.

Too many : Nonspecific issues to give you an answer, so i would suggest you discuss each of these with your primary care doctor. They do not seem to be related to each other.

Very possible.: In my area of expertise the bleeding gums is a fairly accurate sign, especially if you consider yourself to have a healthy mouth and good oral hygiene.
