A prospective randomized clinical study to compare honey-impregnated gauze with amniotic membrane dressing in partial thickness burns was carried out. Sixty-four patients were studied. Forty of them were treated with honey-impregnated gauze and 24 were treated with amniotic membrane. The burns treated with honey healed earlier as compared to the amniotic membrane (mean 9.4 vs 17.5 days) (P < 0.001). Residual scars were noted in 8 per cent of patients treated with honey-impregnated gauze and in 16.6 per cent of cases treated with amniotic membrane (P < 0.001).
