|Objective: The aim of the current prospective study is to evaluate the effect of topical application of honey to chronic non healed infected wound with necrotic tissue. Methods: A 45 years old female was admitted to Khartoum North Teaching Hospital with open fracture of the distal tibia and fibula of the right lower limb with infected ulcerated wound. Swabs were taken for isolation, identification and viable count of the causative organisms. Primary care of the wound was done and dressing with MEBO ointment was used. Split skin graft and flap was performed. Topical application of honey was used instead of MEBO ointment. Results: The isolated organism was identified as Staphylococcus aureus. Topical application of honey resulted in clean healthy granulation tissue after two weeks of treatment. Wound was reduced in size with healthy granulation tissue, and complete healing with prompt graft taking was obtained after 6 weeks of honey treatment. Conclusion: Honey accelerates wound healing with promotion of healthy granulation tissue in short period. Honey exerted strong antibacterial activity against infected organism, and helped skin graft taking. Our study established the safety, efficacy and feasibility of topical application honey to promote healing of chronic non healed wound.|
