Honey Heals Wounds Infected with MRSA

Effect of Medical Honey on Wounds Colonised or Infected with MRSA
Journal of Wound Care, Vol 16, No 08, Page 325 , September 2007

This retrospective case series reports on seven consecutive patients with MRSA infected/colonised wounds treated with Medihoney. The patients had been infected/colonised during the previous five years, and had then received antibacterial medical honey.

Antiseptics were used on the first day of treatment only. Patient acceptance of the honey dressing was good. MRSA was eradicated in all wounds without the further use of topical antiseptics or systemic antibiotics. All wounds eventually healed.
