Has anyone fixed  gummosis in his citrus plants?
Would mulch and watering help reverse it?

I don't have much experience with citrus, though I have seen plenty of gummosis on Prunus species.

Gummosis is is a symptom. It is a response to some type of mechanical injury usually. In Prunus it may be a response to frost damage, a  boring insect, damage from a weed whackers or a lesion from a vascular disease.

The best thing to do for any tree is to make sure it is getting proper irrigation and to improve soil conditions. Mulch and water help with both of those.
