I think gargling with Listerine is good. It might help to relief the pain. Oral hygiene is a must.

@ Faisal, Taking vitamin C will lessen gingivitis too, and a oral prophylaxis will help too every 6mos.
Rosidah, this is a good post.

Just wanted ot answer your quesiotn on my Lensday post. "Maracas" are a musical instrument usually shaped sort of like a gourd full of small pieces of... something. They're used as a rhythm instrument. The "egg" in my shot is filled with something like large-grained sand and makes a ... rattling sound. It's shaken in time with the beat to punch up the rhythm. It's not technically a maraca, but it's similar and used the same way.
