I rarely brush my teeth, yesterday when I brushed my teeth I even bled, I haven’t brushed my teeth in a week because I’m still bleeding … is it okay to brush my teeth when the gums bleed? every time I brush my teeth and bleed, my throat doesn’t feel good … so I rinse out warm water and salt to relieve it … is it because the blood isn’t clean in the throat?

Hello Abdul Eka, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
The complaint you mentioned is not very specific, and is complete to diagnose a definite illness. From your story it can be concluded that you are experiencing prolonged bleeding gums. You need to make sure the source of the bleeding again, especially if you don't even brush your teeth, your gums bleed. Some possibilities that can occur include:
Blood comes from tooth brushing that is too strong to injure the gums.
Infection of the teeth, or gums.
There are abnormalities of blood clotting.
If it occurs with a fever, it is necessary to think about dengue fever.
To make sure this time you need to re-evaluate your complaint, is it true that blood is still coming out today even if you don't brush your teeth. If not your blood yesterday is due to injury, if still you can consult a dentist first, to determine whether there is an infection in your teeth or gums. However, if bleeding gums without cause, and accompanied by fever you can directly go to the emergency room clinic, health center, or hospital.
At this time what you can do include:
If there is no more blood, you can brush your teeth.
Replace your toothbrush with soft bristles on the tips to make it softer.
Learn how to brush teeth properly.
Get enough rest, and eat nutritious food.
Ask your family if there is a history of blood clotting abnormalities in your family.
That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
