I bit my tongue really hard on accident and now it won't stop bleeding and I don't know what to do?

I bit my tongue really hard on accident and now it won't stop bleeding and I don't know what to do?

First, pressure.: Use some gauze to get some traction and really apply continuous pressure to the wound with your fingers. Try to hold as long as you can, 20-30 min, with a minimum of checking.

A piece of glass cut the middle of my tongue while eating food. What else should I do? I used ice to stop the bleeding. Do I need a Dr. or RX?

A piece of glass cut the middle of my tongue while eating food. What else should I do? I used ice to stop the bleeding. Do I need a Dr. or RX?

Glass injury: Superficial cuts to the tongue generally heal quickly, with no intervention required. You can rinse mouth with water after eating to loosen debris. One risk of glass injury is a shard of glass remaining in the wound. This can be identified with XRAY, however the tongue is highly sensitive and I suspect you would notice it. Given bleeding has stopped, no further action required. See Dr if problem. ...Read more
