Derma Sciences Medihoney Gel Wound and Burn Dressing helps in maintaining a moist environment for optimal wound healing. It is made up of Leptospermum Honey and Natural Gelling agents. The high osmotic potential of MediHoney helps in pulling fluid from deeper tissues to the wound surface. Medihoney dressing gel cleanses and debrides due to high osmolarity. It has a more viscous formulation with increased stability at the wound site.

What is MediHoney?

MediHoney is the world's leading wound care dressing brand made with medical-grade Active Leptospermum Honey. It is derived from the nectar of a flowering Leptospermum species, Uh, vine. The bees collect the nectar from this flowering plant and produce honey that researchers have found to be unique for the management of hard to heal wounds and burns.

How does MediHoney with Active Leptospermum Honey help heal wounds?

It helps the body’s natural wound cleansing processes which have been shown to have wound healing benefits -
  • Medihoney Wound Gel maintains a moist wound environment
  • Aids in cleansing the wound of factors that may delay wound healing
  • MediHoney has a low pH of 3.5-4.5
  • Easy to use
  • Non-toxic
  • Latex-free, and sterile
  • Natural and safe

Why choose MediHoney Gel?

  1. Autolytic Debridement  - During autolysis, the body breaks down tissue or cells. A moist environment, supported by MediHoney dressings, aids the body’s process of bringing wound fluid to the surface with endogenous enzyme, thus loosening and liquefying necrotic tissue.
  2. High Osmolarity - The high sugar content of honey facilitates movement of fluid from an area of higher concentration, across a membrane, to an area of lower concentration. Osmotic potential draws fluid through the wound, to the surface, helping to liquefy non-viable tissue.
  3. Low pH - The failure of a chronic wound to heal has been correlated with alkaline pH levels ranging from 7.15 to 8.94.10 MediHoney has a low pH of 3.5–4.5. Maintaining more acidic pH levels within the wound environment can help to keep a wound on track towards healing.

How do you use Medihoney wound and burn dressing?

How to apply MediHoney Leptospermum Honey Dressing?

  1. Prior to application of MediHoney Gel with Active Leptospermum Honey dressing, cleanse the wound area as necessary
  2. Open the cap and remove the sterile seal before using
  3. Apply MediHoney either directly to the wound bed, or onto a suitable primary dressing such as alginate, gauze pad, or island dressing
  4. Cover with an appropriate secondary dressing

How to remove MediHoney Wound Gel?

  • Dressing change frequency will depend on the condition of the patient as well as the level of wound exudate
  • Reapply MediHoney Gel when the secondary dressing has reached its absorbent capacity or as directed by a wound care professional
  • Moisten with sterile saline if the wound bed appears dry before removal of the dressing
  • Remove the secondary dressing from the wound bed gently
  • Cleanse the wound bed prior to application of new dressing
  • 3rd degree burns
  • Patients who have a known sensitivity to honey or any other component parts specific to each dressing
  • To control heavy bleeding
  • Due to the dressing’s low pH, some patients may notice slight transient stinging upon application of the dressing. If stinging persists and cannot be managed with an analgesic, remove dressing, cleanse area, and discontinue use.
  • During initial use of the dressing (depending on wound exudate levels, interstitial fluid, and edema surrounding the wound), the dressing’s high osmolarity may contribute to increased exudate. This can be managed by adjusting the frequency of dressing change according to the level of exudate.
  • During the healing process, due to autolytic debridement it is common for non-viable tissue to be removed from the wound resulting in an initial increase in wound size. Although an initial increase in size may be attributed to the normal removal of nonviable tissue, consult a healthcare professional if the wound continues to grow larger after the first few dressing changes.
  • After removing the dressing, if some material remains and is not easily removed, soak with sterile saline or water until it is removed without difficulty.
  • Consult a healthcare professional if you see signs of infection, which can include increased redness, increased pain, increased wound drainage, increased skin irritation, and changes in wound color and/or odor.
  • Do not use this dressing with any other primary dressings, other than those listed in this package insert, without first consulting a healthcare professional.

MediHoney Dressing FAQ

MediHoney comes from a traceable source and is free of pesticides and antibiotics.

How often should MediHoney Wound Dressings be changed?
