When I get a mosquito bite I put an 'x' over it with my finger and some spit and it stops itching and the swelling goes down too.

From a cursory examination of studies it looks like human saliva does not have nerve growth factor that was found in rats saliva to heal wounds. We do have histamine and some other antibacterial agents in our saliva that could help with wound healing. Saliva was also shown to heal wounds faster than when a wound was not treated. So it could help.
Someone on yahoo answers said their drooling seemed to be causing acne, lol.. And I saw something else where someone had their dog lick their back to make acne go away.

I dont use anything other at the moment.. When i shower, i wash my face- That is ca. every 2 days. I swim once a week and the days after my skin always gets worse
But i think this saliva thing is helping!
