message 1: by janine (new)

janine | 7715 comments imagine you have a small, non-life threatening wound on your finger, which is otherwise relatively clean. do you lick the blood from your finger, or wipe it on a handkerchief? and which method would introduce the smallest amount of bacteria to the wound?


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) I lick if it's just a drop or two. Is that bad?

Depends on where that mouth of yours has been young lady!


message 5: by Lori (new)

Lori I wipe it on my jeans or lick it. Or if it's bleeding more than a drop or 2 I wrap in a paper towel. I'm so glad it was OK for me to be a tomgirl when I was a kid, kids are supposed to have scrapes all over their knees! And I never babied Jake either. I feel sorry for all those kids who have such overprotective parents.

I would probably lick the wound clean and then try to stop the bleeding with pressure--so I guess that's kind of doing both.

Kristina | 136 comments Lick it off. I'm not overly concerned about germs or bacteria unless I'm at work. If I'm at work then it's all water, soap and antibacterial stuff.

I would head for a faucet, or if there wasn't one, a fresh tissue.

"There are potential health hazards in wound licking due to infection risk, especially in immunocompromised patients. Human saliva contains a wide variety of bacteria that are harmless in the mouth, but that may cause significant infection if introduced into a wound. A notable case was a diabetic man who licked his bleeding thumb following a minor bicycle accident, and subsequently had to have the thumb amputated after it became infected with Eikenella corrodens from his saliva."

**frowns**

I lick, but only if the cut is minuscule. If it is at all bigger I swoon, turn grey, scream for Sweeter, and lay dramatically on the sofa for at least a half an hour.

dropped blood on it?


message 26: by Michele (new)

Michele bookloverforever (lovebooks14) | 1970 comments regarding a small cut on my hands or fingers: I would actually suck the blood out of the cut to move out any germs from whatever had caused the cut. Then, I would either use one of those alcohol/towelettes or water and soap to clean it out and then a bandaid.
