First I'd heard or using honey. I always use mud.

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/honey/AN01796

"However, it's important to note that the specialized honey used in wound products and in research studies is different from honey available to consumers. Also, the honey used in research studies has been treated to remove contaminants. It's not clear at this time whether ordinary supermarket honey has the same wound-healing effect."

i have no idea if the honey really works or if it is just a wives tale, but ppl here still put it on small cuts and scrapes. I too do it and have never had any problems. I have tried it on one small cut and left another cut without honey and the honey cut healed faster...

plain old hone, bought from the bee keeper... no special treatment.

In the old day's you would probably be considered a doctor with the knowledge you have. Are you currently on a backcountry mission? If so, please post some info and pics when you return.

A small tube of Neosporin works great to speed healing of wounds. I once cut my finger with a bandsaw while resawing and felt 3 saw teeth bounce of my knuckle. After the bleeding subsided, I started using Neosporin and fresh bandages daily. I should have had a few stitches but it healed nicely and I still have all of my fingers.
