    How do I heal a sore on my tongue?

    I keep having these sores on my tongue. sometimes its due to me mistakenly biting it, other times it comes as a sign of fever. The issue however is healing it. Most times, i wait for it to naturally heal. So, I'd like to know if there's anything I can do as a form of treatment.
