Honey was used on wounds as far back as the ancient greeks. It does have some medicinal value. Although a standard topical antibiotic would be better.<br />

For internal antibiotic, I don't know of any study but usually such claims are ridiculous. It has to be absorbed by the small intestine then be processed by the liver before going systemic. By that time it should be broken down for use as energy or fat storage.

Yeah. I love honey! Soothes the throat and its great to use to sweeten cereal. I also hear milk and honey is good for the skin. It has many good qualities, you can go to a health food store and they can tell you more.
