In brief: Sore throat

It is likely you have an infection in your throat.
Viral infection will typically resolve on its own. Bacterial infections, however, (ie: strep), will require antibiotics in order to resolve. I recommend you consult with your doctor in order to make the correct diagnosis and initiate appropriate treatment.

In brief: Viral infection

All normal for a bad cold.
As the cold gets better the throat and gums should heal. See your md and dentist if they do not.
