Here is an article on it for you

Honey helps problem wounds
Medihoney more effective than antibiotics -- Bonn-led study to start soon
This press release is also available in Germany.

A household remedy millennia old is being reinstated: honey helps the treatment of some wounds better than the most modern antibiotics. For several years now medical experts from the University of Bonn have been clocking up largely positive experience with what is known as medihoney. Even chronic wounds infected with multi-resistant bacteria often healed within a few weeks. In conjunction with colleagues from Düsseldorf, Homburg and Berlin they now want to test the experience gained in a large-scale study, as objective data on the curative properties of honey are thin on the ground.

Hello, Is your bird still eating and drinking? I have found that new product called VETERICYN worked great every time I have used it. It is very aggressive on infections.one step topical spray. they have a over the counter formula and a double strength veterinary formula. Good luck with that:))

Just checking in to see how Ernie is doing and if the soaks have been helping him. He's such a sweet looking boy - I hope everything is ok!

Has any of the scab-looking part come off? I think that you are going to need to get the stuff out of that mass in order for it to go away. Hopefully someone with more experience can give advice about that! You are doing such a good job with him - keep us updated!
