Rapidly removing malodour.

How to Use Medihoney Antibacterial Medical Honey:
Protect wound edges with Medihoney Barrier Cream.
Apply the honey directly to the base of the wound, avoiding direct contact between the wound and the nozzle of the tube.
The honey can also be applied into deep wound cavities or soaked into a suitable dressing.
Ensure that the Medihoney is in full contact with the base of the wound - approximately 3mm thickness (1/4 inch).
Apply more if wound fluid is present.
A suitable non-adherent sterile pad or dressing should be applied to cover the honey.
The dressing should be sufficiently absorbent to manage wound fluid.
Medihoney Antibacterial Medical Honey can be left in the wound for up to 7 days dependent on the amount of fluid present.
The dressing should be changed when it is saturated with wound fluid or if the cover dressing is leaking.
Do not use on individuals who have had an allergic reaction to honey.
Use within 4 months of opening.
The wound may appear larger in size and depth as dead tissue is cleaned away.
This increase should be followed by an improved appearance of the wound.
