Honey, the Best for treatment of First and Second Degrees of Burns

By Kyle J. Norton

Scientists may have found a whole fruit for speeding up the healing of burns, according to studies.

Burn is skin and skin tissue damage due to heat, cold, electricity, chemicals, friction, or radiation. The condition is the most prevalent injury in the household, particularly in children.

Most cases of skin burn are healed within a few days or weeks, depending on the degree and size of the burns.

Depending on the severity, complications of deep or widespread burns may include bacterial infection (in some cases can lead to sepsis), hypovolemia (fluid loss), hypothermia (low body temperature) and breath difficulty due to the intake of hot air or smoke.

In some cases, patients with deep or widespread burns can be life-threatening. According to statistics, from Dr. ISHTIAQ AHMED CHAUDHARY in the study of burns and mortality, there is 100% mortality rate in patients with 70% total body surface area burns compared to the 100% survival rate in patients with less than 30%.

Most cases of first and second-degree burns that affect only the top layer of skin can be treated under cool running water or cool water for 15 minutes until pain subsides or taking a pain reliever and applying antibiotic cream.

Other higher degrees of burns should call 911 immediately.
Honey, the rich golden liquid is the miraculous product made by bees using nectar from flowers.

The liquid is considered one of healthy sweet food for replacing the use of white sugar and artificial sweetener by many people.

Researchers with an aim to develop a strategy for making the alginate base hydrogel components against burned wound infection examined the effect of honey in the biofilm forming bacteria colonization in burned patients.

Following the collection of the honey from three different provinces of Iran, an alginate base hydrogel was prepared by the use of calcium chloride.

In vivo, the healing activities of prepared ointment were compared in infected burned rat models. 75% diluted thymol based honey collected from Damavand province showed the greatest inhibition of bacteria in wound compared to others.

The hydrogel was also the better healing activity in rats burned wound against the bacteria biofilm-forming bacteria colonization compared to the honey application.

Additionally, in order to reveal more activities of honey, researchers investigated the medicinal honey antibacterial and immunomodulatory properties in the treatment for infected wounds.

Ras-induced burn wound selected to the study were randomly allocated into 4 experimental groups: control (C), PBM super pulsed 904 nm laser treated (PBMT), honey treated (HT) and combined treatment (CT).

The CT group demonstrated synergistically attenuated inflammation, pain and enhanced cell adhesion, migration compared to other treatment groups.

The efficacy of CT was attributed to the inhibition of the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines such as TNF-α, NF-κB, IL-1β and exhibition of molecules in the promotion of wound healing by spreading of platelets at the site of injury, fibroblasts, and endothelial cells into the wound region.

The findings strongly supports the use of the combination of medicinal honey and PBMT in accelerating the repair process of burn wounds.

Taken altogether, honey used alone or combined with other therapeutic agents may be used for speeding up wound healing with no side effects, pending to the confirmation of larger sample size and multicenter human study.
