Okay, I admit it. I did something really dumb today and am now living with a big ugly gash on my finger. I have read about using honey as a wound dressing. Most articles talk about "Medi-honey" or Manuka. Is there any reason I could not use my own honey? Could the pollen and possible bee-parts in it be detrimental to healing? I only strain my honey through a nylon cloth. Also, is there any danger in putting honey in a rather deep wound? Even though my brain knows better, I apparently have this deep-seated mental mind-set that honey is 'food" and you need to keep food out of wounds.
