I guess this applies to this section. Just wanted to tell every one about my experience of using honey as a WOUND DRESSING. I was involved in a motorcycle accident a couple weeks ago and along with a broken wrist (honey doesn't seem to help that ) I have the normal road rash on my left hand knee and foot ( the foot wound goes down to bone). I have been covering the wounds with honey daily the hand is just a little pink now, the knee has a little scab and the foot is getting there slowly. All have healed better and faster than if i had done nothing or neosporin. On a side note my mother had a diabetic sore on her stomach that would NOT heal. She went through several courses of antibiotics to no avail. I finally convinced her to use honey, the sore was healed in a matter of days.
