    if one licks their own cuts, would that greatly increase the risk of infection? just a low increase? makes no difference?

    Why is that your goal? It would probably increase the risk of infection but unless you had your tounge ... somewhere bad ... I doubt it would be that bad.

    But if a wound is infected it's infected and needs treated.

    Eh. The tongue does have infectious elements to it, but as long as you clean out the wound properly after you've had your fun, it's fine.
    I doubt anything will happen.
