Pass The Sugar

Not long ago I was poking around in my bathroom cupboard looking for my antiseptic cream. I had a wound on my hand and, to be on the safe side, wanted to put some cream on it to ensure that it didn’t get infected and it healed properly.

As is always the case I couldn’t find the cream when I needed it. I took this as a sign that maybe this wasn’t the best course of action. I jumped online and did a bit of Googling only to find something surprising – both honey and sugar are good for healing wounds!

Turns out some cultures have been using these methods to treat wounds for years, however it is only in our recent history that doctors are taking notice.

By pouring sugar or honey directly into the wound it absorbs the excess moisture, preventing bacterial growth. Honey additionally has an antibacterial effect as well as preventing the growth. Studies also show that using sugar or honey can reduce the (often foul) odour from a wound, soothe and reduce pain as well as preventing bleeding.

It is important to note that once the wound is filled with sugar or honey, it must be bandaged with a sterilized bandage and then the sugar or honey re-applied and re-bandaged daily.

Further research showed me that honey may be slightly more effective than sugar, even though it seems to be used less. This may be because sugar doesn’t contain hydrogen peroxide from bees, where as honey does. Sugar is also slightly more difficult to pack into a wound, whereas the liquidity of honey means that it can get right into all parts of the wound.

Goes to show that when we go back to our roots, nature has the answer every time!
