Try Medi-honey. It is medical grade honey specifically for healing wounds. My mom was bedridden for eight months before she died and one of her home health aides accidentally caused a wound on her back that quickly became the size and depth of your fist. It was horrible.
The wound care specialist from hospice had us try something they had never tried before. She had us wash the wound out with Seaclens then saturate with Medi-honey, pack with gauze and cover with tegaderm.
Within a couple of weeks the wound had gotten so small you barely see it. The hospice nurses were amazed. They had never seen a wound that big heal so quickly, especially as it was in someone whose immune system was so compromised.
My sister and I became big proponents of Medi-honey. I used it after my DIEP flap. and healed faster than any other patient my surgeon had ever seen.
You can find all 3 on Amazon. Medi-honey, Seaclens and Tegaderm. Not very expensive, either.
Good luck. Hope you find something that works for you.
