Whenever I have any cut in my lips ,it gets healed in 2-3 days so why do lips get healed faster as compared to other body parts?


1 Answer 1


According to this article:

Wet or moist wound treatment significantly reduces the time required for re-epithelialization

Since the lips are (normally) constantly being moistened by saliva, this could be the reason you experience accelerated cut healing.
