Manuka honey is excellent for treating burns as we personally can attest to. It can be ordered from amazon.com

The New Zealand Honey Discovery

For centuries honey has been recognised as having beneficial health-giving qualities due largely to an enzyme activity.
Scientific research at New Zealand's University of Waikato discovered that some strains of New Zealand manuka honey contains an extraordinary,naturally present, very stable and more powerful unique antibacterial activity not found in any other variety of honey.
This unique antibacterial activity is a non-peroxide activity and comes from the nectar of the manuka flower - it is quite distinct from the enzyme/peroxide activity that is common to most honeys.
This special non-peroxide antibacterial activity sets Manuka Honey apart as one of nature's true wonderfoods.
But this special unique non-peroxide activity is not in all manuka honey

oh geezus. do not tell people to put honey on burns. I had someone tell me to put honey on my sunburn (which was my face) and that damn honey made it worse --- my face was so swollen from blisters under the skin line that i looked like a goddamned monkey. and then my skin was oozing out blister goo. it was pretty much the most disgusting thing ever.

HONEY and BURNS is a NO NO>

this is your PSA>

Sage advice....

Look people...

Caution

Don't use ice. Putting ice directly on a burn can cause a person's body to become too cold and cause further damage to the wound.
Don't apply egg whites, butter or ointments to the burn. This could cause infection.
Don't break blisters. Broken blisters are more vulnerable to infection.

Found this in my email this morning. Anyone know if this really works?


Plain White Flour--who knew?
Once I was cooking some corn and stuck my fork in the boiling
water to see if the corn was ready. I missed and my hand went
into the boiling water....

A friend of mine, who was a Vietnam vet, came into the house, just
as I was screaming, and asked me if I had some plain old flour...I
pulled out a bag and he stuck my hand in it. He said to keep my hand
in the flour for 10 mins. which I did. He said that in Vietnam, this guy
was on fire and in their panic, they threw a bag of flour all over him to
put the fire out...well, it not only put the fire out, but he never even had
a blister!!!!

So, I put my hand in the bag of flour for 10 mins, and then pulled it
out and had not even a red mark or a blister and absolutley NO
PAIN.

Now, I keep a bag of flour in the fridge and every time I burn myself,
I use the flour and never ONCE have I ever had a red spot, a burn or a
blister!

*cold flour feels even better than room temperature flour.
Miracle, if you ask me. Keep a bag of white flour in your fridge and
you will be happy you did. I even burnt my tongue and put the flour
on it for about 10 mins, and the pain was gone and no burn. Try it!

Don't run your burn area under Cold water first, just put it right
into the flour for 10 mins and experience a miracle!

I'm calling BS.

You CAN do this with ICE and water in a large bowl and it will stop the blisters....and it will heal very fast.

....but this sounds like uber bullcrap.

I'll stick with the icewater.

While messing with some electrical starter wires yesterday on the lawn mower I ended up with 2nd degree burn on my finger and put the Manuka honey on it then covered it with a bandaid. Pain was gone in less then an hour. Slight visible sign of the burn (little redness) and slight soreness today. However, I took the bandaid off last night and didn't leave it on for 24 hours. That stuff works great.
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.
