I had a bad infection that wouldn't clear up, plus I have sores all over from chemo and blood tests.  The Manuka honey is great, sooths and heals.     I read that a hospital in Birmingham, England is using it on their cancer patients to keep them from contacting MRSA.

I bought two tubes of it from Amazon.  Someone remarked that buying it in a tube keeps it sterile.

After my mastectomy that was done at the Royal Marsden in London my wound would not heal so I was given Manuka Honey dressings as that did the job, unfortunately my husband to a liking to the honey and now I but it for him at £10.00 per jar.

It takes away the pain too.   I've had this open wound for weeks now and it just kept oozing.  The doctor had me filling it with soap two-three times a day and rinsing it with the shower head.  Even using Dove soap, it hurt plus it wasn't getting any better.  Now, no more pus and most of the pain is gone.  I hope it can be closed up soon.

Yes Manuka honey is great in healing wounds faster which the medicines normally take very long time to heal.It has antibiotic properties also.
