For starters, Healthline says honey's anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties are very helpful in treating burns and wounds, particularly those that may have become infected. The anti-inflammatory properties of honey make sure that immune response to these wounds does not disrupt the healing process. You should note that inflammation, which is the body's way of healing you, may not be completely safe for some reasons; in fact, it may cause more harm. Fortunately, honey contains anti-inflammatory properties that handle chronic inflammation, and antibacterial properties that handle wounds that have become infected. (According To Healthline On The 19th Of November, 2021, "Researchers theorize that honey’s healing powers come from its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects. A review of 26 studies on honey and wound care found it most effective at healing partial-thickness burns and wounds that have become infected after surgery.")

(According To Healthline On The 19th Of November, 2021, "Honey is also an effective treatment for diabetes-related foot ulcers, which are serious complications that can lead to amputation.")
