$0.48 per application
Medical grade Manuka Honey can be used as a wound dressing and has multiple bioactive components that expedite the healing process. Manuka honey enzymes and proteins function best as the honey reaches body temperature. Unlike other honey, authentic Manuka honey is not temperature sensitive. Furthermore taking 1/2 a teaspoon a day supports good bacteria, healthy gut flora, calms the digestive system, restores digestive effectiveness and supports a healthy immune system.
Apply a generous coating, cover with a band aid or similar repeat every three days. With first use expect a slight stinging upon application. If stinging persists discontinue use and consult a medical professional.
Please do not use a food grade on a topical issue as it is not sterile.
Works great, a bit sticky but well worth the prevention of scarring of burns. I bought this after I recieved 2nd degree burns on my hand. I had tried silver nitrate but the area was starting to get infected and had lots of granular tissue, swelling and redness. I applied this daily and had immediate effect on the inflammation and swelling. The granular tissue was easier to debride as it had softened during the night. It did sting a little when applied. Encouraged, I stuck with it over the course of a week or more and continued the debriding. Every time I would stop and think it was enough and I could stop the honey, the the scabbing would start again, so back to the honey I went. In the end the area is a deep red but had no scarring and very minimal raised areas. As a test I used silver nitrate and antiobiotic cream on another small area from the same burn and that area is now raised and scarred though it was a smaller area than the honey treated site. I will continue to use this honey for all my burns from now on. The only problem is it IS messy but if you wrap it in stretch medical gauze that will keep the stickiness off YOU and allow the wound to continue to breathe. I believe those that did not have good results did not continue the treatment long enough, did not properly do wound care like debriding as you would with any other burn treatment or they wrapped the wound with the honey in regular bandages which didnt allow proper ventilation of the site. on a side note, I am currently trying out other treatments with the honey, like for warts and am also having successes.
Good product Medical grade Manuka Honey products can be wildly expensive. This is the most economical version I found. Its working great for a large skin wound on my dog. Prevents infection and keeps the wound moist.
Very fast healing honey. I was really confused about which manuka honey was the real deal. I have read about UMF and MGO but a lot of it seemed like people trying to sell their own product. I settled on this one because it's medical grade and I wanted it for topical use. I had what I thought was a bug bite on the side of my face that I picked at and it got very angry and weepy. I realized after it hadn't healed in a week that there was a good chance it was staph and not a bug bite after all. I had been using hot compresses, bacitracin, and keeping it covered with gauze most of the time. It just got angrier. In desperation I ordered this and applied it immediately when I received it. Within 24 hours it was totally free of inflammation and wasn't getting oozy anymore. 2 days later it's healed 95% with new pink skin and a little dryness around the edge. It's wonderful. From what I understand, medical grade is sterilized with radiation - but not heated - to retain the benefits but remove botulism etc. It is supposed to be the only kind to use topically.I'm not sure why so many people are using this primarily for internal use. I would think a non irradiated kind would be better in that regard. All in all, this brand has worked very well in my experience. It saved me a trip to the doctor which is worth the price alone.
Manuka honey is causing tissue and skin growth on wound. WE had a doctor in Wound Care recommend using Manuka Honey on my husband's head. He has recently had a large skin cancer removed on his head and his skull was exposed. Since we have been using this honey, tissue has begun to grow and even new skin. Doctors had first said he would have to have a skin graft and possibly even a metal plate, but since we have been using this honey it has been amazing to watch the growth in the tissue and skin take place. Before using it, nothing was happening. I'll be ordering more.
DERMATITIS NIGHTMARE!!!!!!! Honey Cure!!!!!! For months I had a rash on around my mouth that started out as a mustache rash (I thought). After 3 doctor visits including a dermatologist, I was given 2 rounds of antibiotics that I am still on because this angry rash keeps coming back. I was prescribed lotridone along with prednisone and doxycycline, which I am still on. This ugly rash is perioral dermatitis because it is located around your mouth and nose. It has been very painful, scaly rash that starts out like a pimple. Untreated or misdiagnosed it turns into a dry patch of tight itchy painful raw skin, and so ugly cause it's on your face. After 500.00 Doctor visits and useless 50.00 creams that break you out (metro cream). Useless. I FOUND THE HONEY!!!!!! I spoke to the maker of the honey and was given the correct grade for my problem. I have put a small amount on the spots that are still red and you can feel a tiny tingle action. This if my second day of applying this to this ugly rash that is a monster. It has healed the rash that had left a horrible redness on my face around my nose and above my lip. I hope this will help someone. That is why I have given so much detail.
