Should you Spit on your Wound?

Licking The Wounds - Homies Hacks
'Liking the wounds' - almost everyone knows this phrase. It means spending time in getting back your strength or recovering from a defeat. But what about the health value? Does the saliva applied during wound licking contain healing substances that heal wounds faster?

If we get a wound, we often lick it instinctively, Even animals lick their wounds; and now a research group has found a sensible explanation for the phenomenon.

Licking is quite a sensible reaction, especially if no clean water is available - the saliva cleanses the wound, and it contains all sorts of substances that act against bacteria making it an antibacterial liquid. One more property which it has is its healing factor and the same can be seen from the fact that wounds in the mouth heal much faster than wounds on the rest of the body.

But although its benefits are more than obvious, we must always remember that everything that glitters is not gold.

Human saliva also contains a variety of germs - and they can be problematic for people with weakened immune systems. This happened with a diabetic patient who had a bicycle accident, in which he slightly injured his thumb. He licked the blood off, and after three days his thumb swelled due to the bacterial infection. Although the patient recovered, the thumb had to be amputated.

Healthy people do not have to worry about saliva therapy. But only if it is your own saliva! So parents should not lick their baby's wounds.
