Presented at: 5th German Apitherapy Congress, March 23-25, 2007, Passau, Germany

Remedies Used in Treatment:

1. Honey Directly in the Crater of the Wound

* cleans the wound of infection and necrotic parts
* kills the microbes
* stimulates the growth of the conjunctive tissue, so it fills the crater of the wound

2. Propolis Tincture on Wet Surfaces

*stimulates the normal epitelisation on the surface of the wound (used after the crater was filled with conjunctive tissue)
* shortens the time of healing
* kills the microbes

3. Propolis Ointment on Dried Surfaces

4. Herbal Oil on All Parts of the Wound

* anti-allergy, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial
* anesthetic
* helps rebuild the damaged tissues

Before and After:

Beginning of Treatment - February 11, 2006

The wound, five days after the accident, treated at home with antiseptic solutions - infected wound, necrotic tissues.

Treatment with honey (in the crater) and propolis (on margins), made once a day. The wound begins to clean. On the margins the skin starts to regenerate.

End of Treatment - April 7, 2006
