Honey is used to treat wounds since ancient times. A honey-based hydrogel has recently been prepared by testing its antimicrobial and wound healing properties. The results showed a better wound healing capacity compared to commercial preparations commonly used for this purpose, proposing an effective and natural alternative for wound care.
