Honey has been used on wounds since ancient times. The present case report describes the post-operative care of an infected wound by use of honey. The wound was first cleaned with saline, and then the honey ointment was applied gently to the wound, using a glove. Granulation tissue and epithelisation were growing quickly and without complications, and scar formation was fine. Euphorbia honey applied was selected according to their antiinflammatory, analgesic, and antibacterial capacity as well as their capacity to promote wound healing.
