Manuka Honey Dressing: An Effective Treatment for Chronic Wound Infections

British Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Volume 46, Issue 1, January 2008, Pages 55-56

Abstract: 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.
