SEE MD NOW: He could have a mouth injury or ulcer causing bleeding but both should stop fairly quickly in less than 5 minutes. You need to see his pediatrician or go to er if bleeding is active. If tiny streaks of blood in saliva, try letting him suck on popsicle to stop the bleeding. ? Any bleeding disorders in the family?

Bleeding tongue: It could be an injury! take him to the er if it is a lot of bleeding that may require sutures stat. If it is an abrasion with little bleeding, it should stop on it's own. Remember that bleeding in the mouth may seem a lot if the little blood mixes with saliva making it look like it is a lot. If the bleeding is a lot do not delay to take action in accessing the emergency medical system.
