Besides honey also has anti inflammatory processes (anti-inflammatory actifity). This attribute is only present in raw honey (not blended or processed), while the honey that has been processed (mixed) will not be used for healing wounds, even very dangerous because it can bring in ulcers and infections

In an article published in the magazine "Ann Plast Surg" in February 2003 AD, conducted a study of 60 patients affected by Dutch nationals injured in varying; include chronic wounds (21 patients), complex wounds (23 patients), and severe contusion (16 patients) The researchers said that the use of honey is easily done for all patients, except one person.

They demonstrated in vitro, that the honey has power spectrum of natural killer / wide coverage. They came to the conclusion that honey is an antibiotic cheap but very effective.

"Department of Obsketrics and Gynecolog at the Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre"; argued frequently used treatment of infectious wounds with natural honey, the result is always satisfying. The wounds will quickly become sterile after treatment for 7-10 days, and honey can accelerate the formation of a more delicate skin tissue.
