You can kill an external infection of any bacteria with honey, dip your finger in honey, dab it all over the wound. Leave it on for a minute or five and wash off, to check that there is not caked on dirt in the wound. Clean if you can if you see some, and repeat. Honey can kill staph and is especially good at killing antibiotic resistant strains. Given that antibiotics have all lost their effects worldwide from over-use, the medical profession is 're-discovering' honey.
