Some doctors use this natural remedyon a routine basis and share positiveexperience reporting their data:Manuka honey dressing: An effective treatment for chronic wound infectionsVisavadia BG, Honeysett J, Danford MH.Maxillofacial Unit, Royal Surrey County Hospital, Egerton Road, Guildford Surrey, UK.The battle against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) wound infection is becoming more difficult as drug resistance is widespread and the incidence of MRSA in the community increases. Manuka honey dressing has long been available as a non-antibiotic treatment in the management of chronic wound infections. We have been using honey-impregnated dressings successfully in our wound care clinic and on the maxillofacial ward for over a year.Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg. 2006 Nov 17;
“Our research suggests that surgeons should seriously consider using honey for post-operative wounds and offer this to patients” concludes Dr Khan. “We would also encourage patients to ask about honey as an option, but stress that they should always follow their surgeon’s advice and not try any home remedies.”
It's been 9 days since my 2nd and 3rd black widow bites. My hand has healed nicely, but the bite on my arm isn't healing. It has a knot under the bite and the entire arm is quite sore. I'm told it could take 2 weeks or longer for it to start healing. One of my friends who is nurse said to put honey on it and cover with a bandage and it should start feeling better in a few days. I have followed her advice as of today, so I'll let you all know the results in a few days.
