I am surprised they are using UMF 5, UMF 15 is a lot more effective for that sort of work.   A study I read some years ago said that if a honey is used that effectively kills invading bacter

My daughter Has a leg ulcer that’s being treated at the local doctors office. I was pretty impressed when the nurse asked her if she would be OK with having Manuka honey put on it.   

Way back in 1996 it was a bad year for the honey crop, too cold if I remember right. So I didn't shift my hives to the high country, kept them all on the Taieri Plains. It was a hard season for the be

i hate to say it but there was a trail done which showed manuka was not good for treating leg ulcers. i have no idea why.

You referred to this trial earlier, but I am not sure of any reference.  Can you find any more info on the trial?  I'm not too sure how manuka honey is able to tell an arm from a leg...

Here's one. But looks like that there are other trials that seem to show success.

A few years ago I had a wisdom tooth removed and ended up with a dry socket which is quite unpleasant (seven on the male pain scale). The dentist plugged up the hole with some fibrous material. I don't remember what it was called but it had the taste, smell and texture that led me to believe it was probably made from the scrotal hair of an extremely old and unwashed bull camel . It fell out almost every night and you would wake up with a mouthful . During this time I was called up for a large search and rescue operation and had to get a jar of the stuff plus a pair of sort of bent tweezers and insert it in the hole myself. After several days in the bush it was still no better so I went back to my dentist and asked her to fill up the dry socket with manuka honey.

What a mistake.  The MPS went up to a nine for about half an hour.

Never had another moments trouble with it after that .
