A cut or bitten tongue, lip, or cheek can lead to bleeding, swelling and discomfort.  There are several things you can do to relieve these symptoms.

  • Apply direct pressure on the bleeding area using a clean cloth.
  • If there is swelling, use a cold compress to reduce the swelling (a Popsicle often works well).
  • Give your child an appropriate dose of Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen.
