Using Honey Dressings to Treat, Cure Burns

Burns can be challenging to treat but especially challenging to manage from a scarring standpoint. If you are struggling to treat a burn, you may want to consider the natural use of honey wound dressings.

Honey dressings, considered a natural or alternative form of treatment, are considered to be quite effective at not only sterilizing a burn but also speeding the healing process. If you are considering the use of silver-sulfadiazine dressing as recommended by your doctor, this can be quite effective as a prescription topical cream for burn healing. However, many patients with burns that are more complex, or if you have a suppressed immune system, the use of honey wound dressings may be more effective at healing your burn injuries.

To create a home application of a honey dressing for your burn wounds, simply use a honey that is undiluted and pure. After cleaning your burns with saline solution or sterile water, then simply apply the honey directly to the burn. In the course of just 24 hours, the burn will heal significantly as the sterilization process begins. In fact, many burn patients find that using a honey dressing is often more effective at sterilizing and reducing bacterial infection versus using the typical silver-sulfadiazine dressings (SSD) as recommended by a doctor.

While not all burns can be effectively treated with honey dressings, there are many burns that, when treated correctly and aggressively, will respond well and there is no prescription medication needed. If you have suffered a burn, be sure to seek medical attention from a doctor, but ask about the use of honey wound dressings in lieu of prescription SSD cream. This will save money on your healthcare and most burn patients find their recovery time from a burn is much faster and there are fewer complications associated with scarring. In an age where healthcare costs are rising, honey may hold the key to saving you significant amounts of money in treatment and time wasted while recovering from a burn.
