This is Dr. David
sorry that you bit down badly on your tongue.
this can be very painful
peroxide can be very irritating. I would rinse with salt water as a way to kill bacteria in your mouth
it is important to also keep good oral hygiene and keep your teeth as clean as possible at this point
you really should see an ENT or ear nose throat doctor to examine your tongue trauma area to make sure you are healing properly
you may need a course of antibiotics to prevent infection
anbesol is fine to use to help numb up the area and decrease pain.
you may benefit from eventually seeing a speech and swallow therapist who can work with you with tongue and mouth and speech exercises to get your speech better.
let me know if you have other questions.
