A cut inside my mouth

Hi, I am having a bit of a problem with a cut in my mouth. I accidentally sliced the upper inside of my lip with my fingernail and it is becoming painful. It is a very small cut, and it didn't bleed, but the pain is getting worse. I have been brushing my teeth like crazy to try to keep my mouth clean, and also rinsing my mouth out frequently with cold water but it is still hurting. I am worried it might become infected since it not getting better. Any suggestions for me to avoid an infection/ doctors visit?
