Background: Fournier’s gangrene is a difficult infective condition to treat. We report our experience of the management of this disease with honey dressings. Material and Methods: Thirty patients admitted with the diagnosis of Fournier’s gangrene were randomly allocated to two groups, one group treated by honey dressing and the other by Eusol dressing. All patients were treated with broad-spectrum antibiotics and underwent debridement and delayed closure as required. Results: In 14 patients… Expand
Honey in the treatment of Fournier's gangrene as an adjuvant: a cross sectional study.
TLDR
Honey reduced the healing and hospitalisation time as well as additional costs in patients with Fournier's gangrene who received topical honey with their therapeutic regimens. Expand
Management of Fournier’s Gangrene; A Randomized Controlled Trial at High Volume Center Comparing the efficacy of Honey and Eusol Dressing in Wound Healing
TLDR
It is predicted that honey is very valuable in the management of Fournier's gangrene as it ensured early clearance of slough, required lesser number of debridement’s, had early wound healing and had relatively shorter duration of stay in hospital than those treated with conventional EUSOL as dressing material.

Honey ‘The Life Saviour’ in Necrotising Fascitis: A Case Report
TLDR
A young boy who suffered a life threatening necrotizing fasciitis leading to massive skin and subcutaneous tissue loss made a remarkable recovery due to dressing with unprocessed honey, laying a huge stress over the fact that un processed honey is a safe, effective, cheap and life-saving alternative to the other costly debriding agents and dressings in life threatening skin and soft tissue infections.
