More user remedies on Bed Sores

Bed sores healed using sugar or honey
suggested by John on Thursday, May 15, 2008

Years ago my mother worked in a home for the elderly and the staff kept a bowl of sugar at the bedside of those who had bed sores. They sugared the sores. Apparently the bacteria causing the sores could not live in the sugar. I've since heard that people have treated bed sores the same way with honey. I haven't had an occasion to see either method tried.
