Remedy from burns

Three years ago I fried chichen in oil and along with it two fingers on my right hand.. lol! Instantly, I had a 3rd degree burn, the skin on both fingers turned into one huge blister, so it was painfully even look at it. My pain level was 11 on scale 1 to 10, so I had to fill an emergency prescription for Vicodin... In short, my burns very very severe. The doctor prescribed some medicated ointment which did nothing but to prevent an infection. I had to wear a huge bandage on my fingers, so I couldn't type or write. Two weeks passed by and I didn't see ANY improvement. The blistered skin deflated and ripped, and the naked flesh was very painful to touch. It was a torture to change bandages every day. So after two weeks of no improvements I started searching for alternative cures. I came across a website, which claimed that natural HONEY is the best remedy for burns, and some individuals treated their severe burns in a week time. It sounded crazy, but I had nothing to lose. So, I've bought natural honey at Jewel, sterilized cosmetic scissors and removed dead/blistered skin to expose unprotected flesh (this step is essential in order to prevent scars). It was brudal and gross at the same time... I've applied generous amount of honey DIRECTLY on the burns and then bandaged them. I've changed bandages twice a day, reapplying honey again (there is no need to clean the area before each application, because honey sort of melts and part of it gets absorbed by flesh and a bandage). Only seven (7) days later - I've got new skin and din't have to wear any bandage anymore! It was like a miracle! Evidently, honey is a natural antiseptic, that is why it helps to heal as well as to prevent an infection. But the best part was a surprize after my skin was healed - I have no scar whatsoever! Looking at my hand no one can tell that I had any kind of burns on my hand.

Yes! honey is the best thing for burns! The pain stops emediately and no blisters. Use raw honey if you can find it.

You MUST debride (take the dead blistered skin off) at least once daily. That would have made a huge difference in your recovery. Your dr should have followed up about that. 2 weeks with covered blisters? Perhaps honey is the best thing for your burn, but NOTHING would have helped you until you cut the dead skin off. Glad you are better!!

Honey is full of natural enzymes. Enzymes work to help your body by eating dead flesh but leaving the living flesh alone so it is very important to use only RAW honey as the process of refining honey heats it too high for the enzymes to survive. RAW HONEY = ACTIVE HONEY

Thank you so much for posting this. I just got burned fixing some supper on hot oil. I didn't have any creams on hand for burns. I ran to the computer and typed in home remedies for burns. Honey is amazing. It isn't even hurting anymore!

I scalded my wrist with steam from a pot of boiling water. My skin immediately peeled off- about an inch in diameter. I instantly went to my freezer to put a cold object on my wrist and went on the computer and found the honey remedy. I found that putting the icy object on first, keeping the area hydrated from the condensation, and then using honey worked really well to ease the pain. I found that after I put the honey(Wildflower honey I had in my pantry) on the affected area and then using a soft plastic ice pack on top of the honey felt better than using the honey at room temperature. The warmth of the honey made the wound burn. Then after about a 1/2 hr. I put on a bandage. It is a couple of hours later and there is very little discomfort. The honey must be working.

I am glad that my post helped so many people! If now, years later I'm receiving emails about my post. Honey definitely works miracles for burns!
