* *ADVISORY* *All serious burns that cover a large area or are not painful to the touch should be evaluated by a trained healthcare provider. We recommend a tetanus booster if you have a burn injury and have not been immunized in the past 5 years.
DOSAGE:Apply Manuka honey directly to the burn, as instructed on the label.
CONCLUSION:We conclude that topical Manuka honey is a safe and effective product for hastening the healing of mild to moderate superficial burns.
