Thank you for your question.
You should put firm pressure on the bleeding area for at least 15-20 minutes. Have someone help you with it.
If your bleeding continues you must be seen in the emergency.

These are the steps to follow in order
1. Wash your hands with soap and water
2. Wear medical gloves, Hold the tongue with a clean cloth and apply pressure for 15 minutes constantly
3. Sit down and tilt your head forward and bend your chin down
4. Mild bleeding will stop after constant pressure of 15min and it will stop oozing completely in an hr
If bleeding is heavy, no other alternative except to go to Hospital
Hope this helps
