Honey for wounds
Posted on April 24th, 2016

Dr. Mareena Thaha Reffai, Dehiwela

Diabetics tend to get wounds easily but  do not heal easily.  Specially these days with the sweating and dry skin, often the diabetics tend to scratch and these scratches can become chronic or take a long time to heal even with antibiotics.

One of the easiest method to heal the wound  is to apply honey on it.  Many  ask whether the ants will not attack the honey! Not really. Ants do not come to the living flesh. And others ask whether it is good for the diabetic since it is sweet. Certainly it is safe since this is only superficial application.

Not only for diabetics even when the little children get hurt or have scrapes or for that matter any wound, acute or chronic heal very quickly when honey is applied on it. Try it! You have nothing to loose since honey is a well known anti septic anyway!

    Thank you for this, I will try it next time. I know honey (honey from the local area, if you can find ) is a good remedy for hay fever.
