Manuka Honey for Incision

So for that past month I've been complaining about how I haven't been healing correctly because they keep opening ! anyways i was just wondering if any of you ladies have heard or tried 'manuka honey' for healing. I've done everything I can to make it heal and my ps told me to keep it clean and dried. so i have been and one of the scabs kind of flaked off and its not even healing underneath !

My ps said not to use it because it can cause yeast infection. except the ironic thing is that it cures for yeast infection too ! I would let it dry but i did my research it says wounds tend to heal 5x faster when its moist not dried.

You are one brave girl. I did read about the honey but we live in the sandhills of NC and I swear our town was built on an ant farm. I wouldnt dare cover my girls in honey lol. All kidding aside, you should be keeping your incision moist if it keeps opening. Letting it dry allows the open areas to scab over, then the scab comes off, reopening the wound, the scab forms again, same vicious cycle. If you have an isolated spot that is causing issues, put petroleum jelly on it and cover it with gauze, changing it twice a day until its healed. Moist healing is the fastest way to heal a wound, trust me, I have done them all with mine and I am almost done healing. Dry healing caused scabs and I got nowhere, wet to dry did ok except it hurt to remove the gauze after it dried and acted like a scab, moist healing worked 100% better.

Let me know about the honey. I am almost healed so I dont need it but I am interested!

lol I totally forgot about the ants, they love to invade sugar xD!

I'm so happy that your incision are healing well. I did think of Vaseline or Petroleum Jelly except I was scared it would only keep my wound open. I tried Neosporin the first time my incision reopened which was a terrible idea because instead it only expanded my wound ! so I thought if i tried petroleum it would do the same thing. then i read someone here on JBI that they've tried manuka honey. so i googled it and boy does it do you good , so instead i'm putting it to the test and i will most def let you know !!!

I also forgot to include that it reduces inflammation and scarrring !! hope it works

I'm about to doubt a little over the honey for this type of healing...

I actually do believe that manuka honey works for healing in many ways it'll probably heal my incision too. But the fact that i did a periareola incision the moisture keeps the skin detatched from my nipples and i dont think pieces of your nipples regenerate, only skin do. In order for them to stick together is if the DRIED skin holds it together... that's what i'm thinking.

I can't risk having it open like this for a week or more. with the honey, i'm assuming its suppose to heal from the bottom layer to the top. with dried skin it closes the top layer first so it could heal underneath. so i think i will have to go back again and staple. my ps is going to kill me for attempting this when she told me not to 0_o
