A few months ago I had a severe allergic reaction and my tongue swelled. As a result, I bit near the back of my tongue causing a tongue tag to form (think skin tag, but on your tongue). It was checked out by both the doctor and dentist, but neither one would cut the dang thing off. It's been rubbing on my second to last bottom molar for at least 4 months. I was told it would probably fall off on its own. It wasn't hurting, but was irritating the bejesus out of me.
Today, I finally had had enough and cut the blasted thing off myself. I brushed my teeth well, rinsed with listerine, and used a clean sterilized pair of cuticle scissors. It took one snip. I rinsed again with listerine, then salt water.
Oh, the relief!
