If you care for a loved one with underlying health problems like diabetes or venous insufficiency, MEDIHONEY can reduce the risk of infections, support the removal of necrotic tissue, and encourage the body’s natural wound healing process.

We’ve created an FAQ for those new to wound care and MEDIHONEY. This article answers the following: MEDIHONEY is a brand name wound and burn gel made from 100% Leptospermum (Manuka) honey. Manuka honey is unique in that it has antibacterial and bacterial resistant properties, meaning it prevents bacteria from building a tolerance to its beneficial effects. Wounds must be protected from external contaminants throughout the course of healing. Doctors and nurses use powerful antiseptics such as Hibiclens soap to regularly clean wounds for a reason-- any new germ to enter the wound area could lead to a bacterial, viral or fungal infection. Occlusive barriers are a wound-care must, insulating the damaged tissue and keeping pathogens out. Honey's high viscosity makes it a particularly effective occlusive barrier for wounds. As a bonus, as long as the wound isn't leaking considerably, a single dressing may last for several days.Until recent years, the use of honey as an occlusive dressing for wounds and burns was considered a natural, but unproven, alternative to traditional wound management products. Today, researchers have caught up with ancient wisdom and the use of medical-grade honey for the treatment of wounds is supported by a growing body of scientific evidence. Healthcare professionals have observed the reduction of symptoms of inflammation when raw, medical-grade honey is applied to wounds. This is thought to be a result of the large amounts of antioxidant compounds found in raw honey, like flavonoids and other polyphenols. Honey has also shown to be helpful in eliminating wound fluids (known as exudate) which may play a role in reducing inflammation. This also helps reduce pain and discomfort, especially during wound dressing changes. Please note that parcels weighing over 2kg may be sent via courier due to Royal Mail weight restrictions. Medical-honey dressings are easy to use and do not cause trauma to the skin during removal. MEDIHONEY products come in a variety of forms: MEDIHONEY Calcium Alginate Wound Dressing, MEDIHONEY Gel Medical-Grade Honey, MEDIHONEY Paste Medical-Grade Honey, MEDIHONEY Honeycolloid Wound Dressing Non-Adhesive, and more. Certain types of MEDIHONEY can be worn under casts, slings, compression sleeves, and other apparel. MEDIHONEY products are inherently beneficial for treating sensitive skin issues, such as eczema. Medical-grade honey is free of the petrolatum, parabens, and fragrances often found in products that can cause irritation. Relatively few side effects have been reported, none systemic or serious. In one study 5% of patients reported a stinging pain that occurred after administering the product. MEDIHONEY is contraindicated for those individuals with an allergy to honey. MEDIHONEY looks similar in appearance and texture to traditional store-bought honey, but it’s not a sweetener. Instead, it provides an all-natural way to treat open wounds, preventing gangrene and infection. Often, wounds that have progressed carry a malodorous smell. MEDIHONEY has also been shown to decrease odors that may accompany wounds.

Can be used around wound edges to protect the skin from irritation or breakdown caused by wound exudate Pressure ulcers, foot ulcers, skins tears, lesions, venous ulcers, burns, and other chronic wounds are par for the course in hospital and long-term care settings. Wounds can be difficult to treat and if an individual has a non-healing wound for more than eight weeks, the wound is considered chronic. Poor healing can result from poor blood circulation or an impaired immune system. While clinicians work to treat any underlying conditions that inhibit a wound from healing, they also treat wound topically, for example with occlusive dressings or surgical skin glue (such as Dermabond). Skin glue and occlusive dressings act as a sealant for the wound and surrounding tissue, keeping out the pathogens out while retaining moisture. Protects at-risk skin from breakdown associated with incontinence and can be used under incontinence padsThe gel sheet is helpful in treating a wide variety ofmild to moderately exudating wounds. ForDRY woundsthese should be managed withMedihoney Antibacterial Medical Honey. Cover the MEDIHONEY gel, paste, or alginate dressing with an absorbent sterile, secondary bandage or a compression garment.

The value of honey as a moisture retention agent for the skin has long been known; it so happens that Cleopatra applied honey daily to her skin as part of her beauty ritual. In modern medicine, we know that a properly balanced, moist wound environment is essential for healing. Nearly all wounds are kept moist through the use of occlusive dressings. Medical-grade honey dressings are especially effective at providing a moist healing environment and softening hardened, dry wounds. This is because honey's high sugar content keeps the wound surface moist by drawing in fluid from surrounding tissues.

When it’s time to change the dressing, thoroughly clean the wound with a saline solution. Once you do, repeat the same steps. Second, Manuka honey contains a much higher concentration of methylglyoxal (MGO) than regular honey. MGO is an organic compound known for its antibacterial and antiviral properties. MEDIHONEY wound and burn dressing gel contains a formula of 80% Active Leptospermum Honey (Manuka honey) and 20% natural gelling agents. It’s recommended for the treatment of non-draining to moderately draining wounds, including: MEDIHONEY is different from regular honey in several ways. For one, it’s only produced by bees that pollinate the Manuka flower, a species of tea tree native to New Zealand.
