Wounds in your mouth can heal up to 10 times faster than skin cuts, a study has revealed. Injuries inside the mouth recover quicker because the tissue in the mouth is constantly ready to regenerate itself, research found. Mouth wounds also close up without leaving a scar, which has led scientists to look at a way of mimicking the process to improve the treatment of skin wound healing. Researchers discovered the mouth has more activitity in proteins which reduce inflammation and fire up the cells needed to close wounds. Boosting the amount of this protein in mice’s skin quickens skin healing time by a third – the scientists hope their findings can improve medics’ ability to treat damaged skin. Skin in the mouth is constantly ready to heal itself, scientists say, which explains why injuries in the cheeks and lips heal faster than those on our arms RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Mother releases horrifying images of her daughter struck… ‘This is the best moment of my life’: Gruesome video shows a… Grandmother will be a surrogate for her own grandchild:… Mutated strain of norovirus could be behind the summer… Share this article Share 109 shares Researchers from the University of… Read full this story
