Abrasion on tongue??

Hello to all! I have noticed a cresent shape cut or abrasion in the middle of my tongue and it hurts! It's not discolored nor is the a bump. It feels like it has been burned a little bit. The only thing that I can think of as to what has caused it is eating batter fried french fries. I thought, certainly that couldn't have done it. Has anyone ever experienced a cut or an abrasion on the tongue> If so, what did you do for it?

I have. A cut on the tongue can be exquisitely painful I know, but should heal within a week, since the tongue (and mouth in general), has a huge blood supply.
Try not to irritate it further my touching or playing with it, and eat softer foods until it heals..

You might want to try warm water salt rinses three or four times a day.
8 oz. glass of water, one level teaspoon salt. Take a swig, and swoosh gently around in your mouth until water no longer feels warm. Repeat until you've gone through the entire glass of water. Very boring.(!) Very healing.
If you see no improvement in two weeks, see your doctor.
