honey treatment and wounds

by Aletha Tippett MD

How often have you thought about using honey in a wound dressing? Never? In twenty years of wound care, honey was always something that could be used – sometimes by itself on a wound, or sometimes with other dressing material used on a wound.

If you stay current, you are certainly aware of the numerous dressing formats available on the market that contain Manuka honey.

Wound cleansing is an interesting dilemma. What? How can that be a dilemma? Everyone knows that you cleanse a wound before dressing it. This is what has been taught for years. Wound cleansing began in the late 19th or early 20th century once the germ theory was proposed and accepted, and hygiene was successful in reducing infections and death, and improving wound outcomes.

Remedy Products by Medline

by Cerise Adams and James McGuire DPM, PT, CPed, FAPWHc

Our skin is the largest organ in our body requiring a significant amount of vascular support to stay healthy and protective. As we get older, our circulation slows down just when our skin needs more support and more nutrition to continue to function. Besides regular cleansing and proper moisturizing, our skin needs nutrients to maintain its ideal function. The Medline Remedy skin care line has attempted to provide that with a topical, bioavailable formula that is antinflammatory and easily absorbed by skin cells.
