MEDIHONEY® Paste is a 100% Leptospermum honey dressing for use on acute and chronic wounds. Supports the removal of necrotic tissue and aids in wound healing. Can be used on superficial to full-thickness wounds, including tunneling wounds. Sterile.
• Maintains effectiveness even in the presence of wound fluid, blood and tissue
• Promotes a moisture-balanced environment conducive to wound healing
• Can be used safely in tunneled wounds or wounds with undermining
• Helps wounds that stalled progress toward healing
• High osmolarity promotes autolytic debridement
• Helps lower overall wound pH
• Non-toxic, natural, and safe
MEDIHONEY® Paste is indicated for lightly to moderately exuding wounds such as: diabetic foot ulcers, leg ulcers (venous insufficiency ulcers, arterial ulcers and leg ulcers of mixed etiology), pressure ulcers (partial- and full-thickness), first- and second-degree partial-thickness burns, donor sites, and traumatic or surgical wounds.
Contraindicated for use on individuals with an allergy to honey or on third-degree burns.
Some patients may notice slight transient stinging. If sting does not stop or cannot be managed with analgesic, remove dressing and cleanse area. An increase in exudate may occur due to the high osmolarity. Manage with an absorptive cover dressing.
