Honey decreases inflammation and swelling in a yet unknown way.
This gift from nature is a well known home remedy for burns. Besides having antibacterial properties, honey is hydrophilic. It can draw out fluid from tissues, a better way to deal with blisters than bursting them.
When honey is applied on the blisters, it draws out just the water and makes covering of the blister thicker, reducing the risk of accidental breakage. You can apply unheated organic honey directly on the damaged skin or mix it with powdered oatmeal to make it stay put for longer.
As in any kind of burn, it is essential to stay hydrated on the outside and from the inside as a lot of fluid is involved in inflammatory reactions. Have plenty of water, fresh pressed fruit juices and salads, taking care to include colorful fruit and vegetable that have antioxidant power.
