Honey has been used in wound care for centuries and has a wealth of evidence to support its use. Medical-grade honey is known to act as an antimicrobial, debridement and anti-inflammatory agent as well as having a positive impact on wound malodour and exudate.

This introduction aims to explain the action of honey, present an overview of supporting evidence and highlight the key effects of honey in modern wound care.

This supplement focuses on the use of a new honey dressing, Medihoney HCS. This is an all-in-one dressing that combines the properties of medical-grade honey with superabsorbent polymer (SAP) technology.
