Wound Healing and Antimicrobial Activities of Yemeni Sidr Honey in Comparison with Manuka Honey

Microbial infections on human wounds are a major health problem globally. These infections are usually caused by unsanitary environments. Wound infections are a major complication of injuries, particularly burns, and this contribute to 50% to 75% of hospital mortality. In many cases of poor healing, the most common bacteria found in the wound area is known as Escherichia coli (E. coli).

Though there are a number of synthetic antimicrobial and wound healing agents, some of them are associated with adverse effects that have caused various other health problems. As an alternative, research has found honey to be a natural product for treating skin tissue infections and wound healing.
