Over the past few months, we have been hearing about the use of MediHoney for chronic wounds. In dermatology, we frequently use cautery for certain lesions and this leaves superficial wounds which can take a while to heal. We usually recommend simple Vaseline to keep the wound moist; however, for certain wounds MediHoney may be preferable. This could just be "hype," but medical grade honey may actually be of value; and there is no downside to using it. Your doctor may recommend it, or you may just want to try it yourself since it is safe and there are few contraindications.
