When you have red gum around your teeth, that is a sign of gingivitis or periodontitis, which is the infection of the gum, the first has no boss loss, and the latter involves periodontal ligament and bone destruction. It is caused by bacteria buildup. I recommend you to visit your dentist as early intervention and treatment is crucial. Optimal hygiene at home is important, like flossing and rinsing with warm salt water or mouth wash on a daily basis.
Go to your dentist for evaluation- most likely you need a cleaning
Please contact your Dentist. It can be due to different reasons like gum disease, mouth breathing, infection, sensitivity etc. you should have a complete exam and follow recommendations.
Red gums can be a symptom of a gum infection. You are smart to be concerned. Gum infections can get into the bloodstream and cause problems in distant body parts.

The best treatment is 360 degrees cleaning around the teeth you want to keep. Sometimes this needs to be done under the gums with anesthesia by the dentist as well.

It is important that you clean 360 degrees around your important teeth at least once every day. You do not have to clean the ones you do not want to keep.

Red gums can also be the result of a body-wide problem other than just the gums. A professional examination can help with this question. This is important. You do not want to ignore a body-wide problem or a red gum problem.

The best source of additional information can be found in the book:
Red ulcerated gums can be due to many tings, such as bacteria accumulation, faulty fillings or restorations, heavy bite among the host of many other things!
See your dentist for exam and possible xrays, then treatment, which can be as simple as scaling with antibiotic debridement.
