Honey-Impregnated Dressings Used Successfully in UK Wound Care Clinic

Manuka Honey Dressing: An Effective Treatment for Chronic Wound Infections
Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg, 2006 Nov 17

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.
