THE healing powers of honey have been known about for thousands of years, dating back to the Ancient Egyptians, who put it on wounds.
...
Dr Matthew Dryden, consultant microbiologist at the RHCH, pictured, said implications for the wider NHS could be "massive" in terms of saving lives, doctor and nurse time and reducing antibiotic use.
...
While all honey contains natural antibacterial agents, Surgihoney had been bioengineered or "turbo-boosted" to make it even better at beating bugs than Manuka honey from New Zealand, which is generally regarded as most potent, says Dr Dryden.
Nurses successfully used Surgihoney to treat a newborn baby transferred from another hospital with the antibiotic resistant MRSA after stomach surgery.
Dr Dryden's results showed it halved cases of women who develop wound infections after giving birth by Caesarean from six per cent to three per cent. About 190 women had a single sachet of honey applied directly to the surgical incision immediately after giving birth.
Nationally, about one in ten women get infections from C-sections, affecting thousands of women.
Dr Dryden,director of infection prevention and control at the hospital trust, has also used it to treat bed sores as well as foot and leg ulcers.
He said: "It has had 100 per cent success in that none of the wounds treated with Surgihoney have deteriorated and by far the majority have showed an improvement."
