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!
