Honey kills staph infections
I developed Staph infection in my leg from a spider bite. It was lanced, bandaged and I took prescription antibiotics. A little while later another sore appeared. It seems the Staph had gone systemic. I took every type of antibiotic and even double doses to try and get rid of it. For a yr and a half I kept breaking out in these horribly painful sores. Finally I got on the net and looked up natural remedys. I tried honey in place of antibiotic topical ointments and immediately my sores improved over night. I put a 1/4 -1/2 tsp of honey on a 4x4 bandage after I showered and dried my skin well, then left it undisturbed for 24 hours and repeated until the sores were gone. It's been yrs since I've had an out break. When I did get an occassional sore, I'd wrap it up in honey just to be safe. I've read they are using honey in some burn units because it helps decrease scaring as well as being a good antibiotic.
