Diabetics tend to get wounds easily but do not heal easily. Specially these days with the sweating and dry skin, often the diabetics tend to scratch and these scratches can become chronic or take a long time to heal even with antibiotics.
One of the easiest methods to heal the wound is to apply honey on it. Many ask whether the ants will not attack the honey! Not really. Ants do not come to the living flesh. And others ask whether it is good for the diabetic since it is sweet. Certainly, it is safe since this is only superficial application.
Not only for diabetics, even when the little children get hurt or have scrapes or for that matter any wound, acute or chronic heal very quickly when honey is applied on it. Try it! You have nothing to lose since honey is a well known antiseptic anyway!
