Cut tongue by teeth and it's bleeding
Hello Doc, My Husband bit his tongue while chewing and it got a severe cut that started to bleed. Used cold water to rinse the area and ice cube to stop the blood. Blood gt stopped after 10-15 mins but now he have a blood clot on his tongue n it's painful. How much time it will take to heal a wound? What can we do to heal this cut and what are the safety measures he can take to prevent the wound from any further infection. Please suggest some food items that can help him to heal his wound fast. And prevent it from getting worse. Eagerly waiting for response. Thanks you
