Is there any swelling around the cuts?
Is the pain increasing?
it's all red around the tip
Did you take any medicine?
and yes, i feel the pain is stronger somehow
Did doctor examine it?
I took motrin yesterday, but no medicine today
my husband father is a doc but he didnt examine it physically, he consulted over the phone
Tongue cuts can take time to heal.
It may take 2 weeks too.
But as the pain is increasing, I would advise to take an examination by doctor.
i'm looking forward for one more week
You need to check whether there is any infection in the cut.
You can continue motrin.
This will help to reduce pain & inflammation.
do i need to see doc or dentist?
since my gum is getting red too
You can see a dentist.
He can examine both the tongue, gum.
great, thanks. until then I'll take motrin
You are always welcome.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know
Thank you Dr. Saha
Have a great day
