Did you know you can use sugar for wound care and healing? I know that honey can help heal a wound but sugar? Researching I found that sugar is used quite often in other cultures to treat wounds. There have been studies done that show plain white granular sugar can heal burns, bedsores plus diabetic ulcers (sugar does not enter the blood stream). Bacteria cannot survive in sugar. Mixing honey and sugar together is said to increase the healing process plus honey helps keep the sugar on the wound. There has been a study that compared sugar vs. honey and which was the better healer. It was determined that honey was the better healer but sugar was effective. The comparison study is here: Effects of honey and sugar dressings on wound healing. - PubMed - NCBI Using Sugar To Heal Wounds I think most of us have sugar in our food storage so this is another. I will be adding a small bag of sugar to my medical bag. It is light and has a longer shelf life then antibiotic/ wound care cream.
