I have a wound on my lip. What happen if I put baking soda on that? Can it do something good with the wound?

    Will it do "something good?" Only if you're a masochist and enjoy feeling pain. Sodium bicarbonate is *not for wounds, won't help healing and is only mildly antiseptic... nearly useless since other remedies like peroxide are far more effective. And it's much too caustic for any open sore.

    Baking soda is for food, it's NoT a medicine. Put antiseptic cream on it.

    yeah baking soda actually helps cuts really well your going to want to do 1 teaspoon of water and 3 teaspoons of baking soda, be warned some people say it burns a little bit

    keep it dry, possibly a liquid bandage like [ SKIN SHIELD ] or walgreens version of liquid bandage will keep it from festering
