What is the first aid for cut on the tongue?

Q: What is the remedy for a sudden cut on the tongue of a child of 2 years?

A:It is usually not necessary to do anything at all. The tongue will heal quickly and without stitches. The wound swells and fills with exudate making it look as though it is infected. It is not and the saliva will prevent infection and antibiotics are not necessary. If the tongue is literally not hanging off then do nothing and it will heal in about 10 days.
