Head / tongue injury: Make sure no symptoms of concussion. No nausea and vomiting, unable to stay awake, significant head neck pain, go to er. Tongue lacerations usually heal quickly. To prevent infection apply diluted hydrogen peroxide on affected area and spit it out after a few minutes. Numbness may be due to injurying nerve endings, can revert to normal with time. If significant cut on chin seek er for sutures.
