Honey Used for Wound Treatment in Ayurvedic Medicine

Role of Honey (Madhu) in the Management of Wounds (Dushta Vrana)
Int J Ayurveda Res, 2010 Oct;1(4):271-3

Application of Madhu (honey) is one among the Shashthi Upakrama (sixty treatment modalities) described by Sushruta.

Clinical observation has shown its effectiveness in treatment of Dushta Vrana (chronic wounds). We report a case of Dushta Vrana on the anterior aspect of the right leg that was treated successfully with local application of Madhu and Neem (Azadirachata indica) bark decoction.
