Does licking your wounds really prevent an infection?
If so, why?

Train Heartnet

no!! who knows what's in your tounge?!?

Julia L
no it just increases the chances of getting germs in your mouth, and you getting sick. it doesn't do anything good to your body.

Miss Minaj
WTF are you an animal?
WOUNDS??? Were you in the war?

No, the chances of getting an infection by the bacteria in the saliva by a human bite is more than from a dog bite... you'd be better off letting your dog lick the wound.

what why would you like your wounds thats nasty your mouth is full of bacteria and junk

If you're a dog maybe

Mark T
yes, but it is not recommended although your spit is antibacterial its just better to put some neosporin and a bandage

Suzzanna F
no your mouth has more germs than any other part of your body. And besides that how can saliva prevent an infection that comes from inside of your body? no hunn

No it doesn't. In fact your mouth is about the germiest part of your body.

I doubt it, you'd probably cause an infection considering all the bacteria in your mouth. I know that some animal's saliva may have some antiseptic qualities, but I don't know about humans.

Ahahaha this is a hella funny question. Of course not, i'd laugh if anyone said yes.

no. that nasty. and stupid. no no no.

No. Humans have more germs in their mouths than any animal on earth with the exception of the fly probably. We are not like dogs, because we do not have healing components in our saliva.

just me
There is a compound in human saliva that does speed the healing process. The draw back is there is too much other bacteria in your mouth. They are experimenting with different ways to isolate this compound and manufacture it. So you can apply it to your wound just like neosporin. It is really neat to read about.


likn my life
Heck no! Where have you heard that? In fact, it INCREASES your risk for infection as the human mouth is actually filthy with "germs."

no. humans mouths have so many nasty germs and stuff inside them it would probably make your wound worse.

just for a some animals not us

Kemical I

No. If you lick your cut it will just get the germs from your mouth in your cut. If you want to prevent infection, try Hydrocoritizone.


Holly H
No, licking an open injury will cause it to get infected because of the bacteria in your mouth. Don't be licking your wounds! It's nasty.

Anthony G
It might work for animals because they don't have thumbs to grab the neosporin...
But um no.

steve w
No. It makes it worse. all the bacteria from your mouth goes on the wound.

Now wolves and dogs have a special enzyme in their saliva that dulls the pain. that helps prevent infection.

"um, noooo! there are just as many germs inside your mouth as there is on your skin!"


no it makes them worse. pissing ( urine) on your wounds help them heal faster because your pee is cleaner than your saliva. Human mouths are really dirty.

Kyle H
NO. If anything, u have so many germs on your tongue u would cause an infection

angie h
I'm thinking that a human licking a wound would almost ensure infection - the human mouth has more bacteria in it than what's on our hands...blech...

Now dog saliva, I'm not so sure about...

I'm curious enough to check it out, though - interesting question!
