Both silver and honey have been used for hundreds of years in wound care. “The properties of honey show it to have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties along with wound cleansing,” says Dr Georgina Gethin at NUI Galway, adding that it also reduces malodour from wounds. Her own research has shown honey to be effective in combating MRSA. The Irish Times
