Is it okay to spit in an open wound?

Asked By: archerinthedark
I have a friend who spits on his wounds whenever he gets a cut or gash and it's bleedy profusely. He says something about saliva helping heal the injury, but I was told by various sources spitting and licking on cuts isn't a good idea due to all the bacteria we have in our mouths. What should I do? Should I be drooling on my cuts or not!? Thanks in advance!
