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. The tongue is rich in blood vessels and can bleed quite a bit. It should stop with pressure. Repair of tongue lacerations is controversial, and limited to very large, deep cuts. If it does not stop, then seek evaluation. ...Read more

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

My son popped a little red bump on the corner of his mouth 50 minutes ago and it won't stop bleeding. He has been holding pressure on it.?

It should stop: Any bumps on a person's skin that bleed when popped, usually stop bleeding in less than 10 minutes if direct pressure is put on the spot. A person can use a tissue, gauze, or paper towel. A spot can bleed longer if the person keeps taking pressure off the spot, to look at it. After bleeding stops, a spot may ooze a little, for a few hours. A doctor can evaluate if bleeding doesn't stop. ...Read more

The donor site on the roof of the mouth will not be harmed by pressure, if the recipient site is the issue, don't touch it without talking to your dentist. ...Read more

Ice & Ibuprofen: Get ice on it right now — 10 minutes on / 10 off for a few hours. Take ibuprofen (400 mg) 3 – 4 times /day for the next 1-2 days. All to keep the swelling down. See your Dentist tomorrow to check the tooth clinically and with an x-ray image to be sure it is OK — at least for right now. Crushed ice in a baggie or frozen peas work well.

Second- it's like any other habit- it requires awareness, acknowledgement and desire to stop. If there's an anxiety or emotional component, speak to your physician for a referral to therapist. ...Read more

Slight bleeding, oozing, or redness in the saliva is very common. Excessive bleeding may be controlled by placing a gauze pad over the area and biting firmly for thirty minutes.
