A Natural Salve- HONEY

Good morning, thought you maybe interested in this.
People outside of the U.S. do this a lot more often than we do. Using pasteurized honey has been found to reduce infection and promote wound healing. It can be a bit messy but honey does its part to keep the wound moist while it heals. Only pasteurized honey. The unpasturized may contain disease-causing microbes.

1998- the nation's first commercial surgical glue was approved by the FDA.
Instead of stitches you may now be glued-no pun intended.
The cuts apparently heal just as those with stitches, without requiring a follow-up visit. It has been found that this technique is not suitable for wounds in skin- stretchy places, like hands, feet,elbows,and knees.
