The researchers noted there was a “statistically significant difference” between the honey group and the other two groups.
The differences observed were in terms of “reduction of ulcer size, days of pain, and degree of erythema [i.e. redness]”.
All treatment methods results in no reported side effects, and the researchers came to a conclusion.
“Honey was found to be effective and safe in reducing minor ulcer pain, size, and erythema,” they said.
