Honey is a biologic wound dressing


Did you know?

Honey is a biologic wound dressing with multiple bioactivities? Each of the healing-promoting activities can be found separately in pharmaceutical products, but in honey they are all present and work together synergistically to enhance the healing process. In addition, there is the added benefit from the physical properties of the honey creating a moist healing environment, one in which the antibacterial activity removes all likelihood of moist conditions favoring bacterial growth.

Honey can be used on any type of wound at any stage of healing. Research has shown honey to be capable of clearing infection, and healing infected surgical wounds. It has been used when wounds did not respond to conventional antibiotic and antiseptic therapy and in wounds infected with antibiotic-resistant bacteria. It can deodorize and debride wounds, expediting, and restarting the healing process.
