Wound management is a major clinical challenge and puts a significant financial burden on the NHS. Because of the rise in long-term conditions including diabetes, obesity and an ageing population, practitioners regularly encounter a wide variety of wound types. In recent years, there has been a resurgence of interest in the use of medical-grade honey in the management of wounds. Honey is anti-inflammatory in action and has the capability to treat local infection, promote autolytic debridement, deodorise wounds and promote granulation tissue. Revamil is a recent addition to the range of honey dressings available and is intended to manage the majority of problems that may arise during wound care episodes. The attributes of Revamil will be illustrated through four case studies.
