Can Pack Honey Be Applied To The Wound?
Good afternoon. I want to ask. Can TJ honey sold in opotik be applied to the wound ??? Tj honey is of genuine quality. Explanation please. Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, for what purpose do you want to rub honey on the wound? What is the exact condition of your wound?
Wounds, some can heal by themselves, others require further treatment from a doctor. Often, wounds that can heal by themselves are those that are small, shallow, and also clean. As for the more severe cases, such as stab wounds, animal bite wounds, torn wounds, and so on, of course this condition is not enough to be overcome only by handling independently.
If you want to apply honey with the aim of accelerating wound healing, then you need to know that this is still not much researched how much effectiveness. Precisely, it is feared, applying honey to the wound will keep the wound exposed to high humidity, and be more susceptible to infection with harmful microorganisms, for example fungi or bacteria. Therefore, we are not authorized to recommend or forbid you to do so.
If your wound is small, shallow, and clean, you can treat the wound by:
Clean with a gauze soaked in liquid NaCl or povidone iodine, pressing so that the dirt out
Do not close the wound too tight
Wear clothes that do not cause excessive friction and pressure on the wound
Don't carelessly put anything on the wound
Do not handle the wound with dirty hands, let alone rub it before it is completely healed
However, if your wound condition is more serious (as described above), it is highly recommended to consult a doctor, surgeon, or dermatologist for proper handling.
Hope this helps ...
