    Default what are some good medicine to help skin to heal

    click link for photo please

    here's an update of my bun's skin cancer:

    the deeper wound that needed to be stitched has fully healed. The area above that stitched wound has an outer layer of the skin, and the skin still hasn't grow back. And if you look at that open skin from the side, you can see the gap to the inner body. However, strangely, there is no blood coming out (a few days ago there is a very small amt. of blood, like a few micro drop)

    The wound is being patched w/ Flamazine. The rabbit savvy vet said polysporin is harmful to a bun, so I shouldn't use it. But what can we use to re-grow back that skin? What about the prodcut "Jason, Aloe Vera 98% moisturizing gel", would that work on a rabbit and help the skin to re-grow?

    what about raw honey or manuka honey? has anyone uses this ? if so, how? do you just patch those honey on the spot?

    if not, how does other rabbit owner deal with this problem?

    As to those satellite tumors, back a mth. ago, I can feel the width of the satellite tumor as a peanut size. In the past 2 weeks, it's very hard to locate that tumor. It's still there, but I try it 4 times and it's very hard to find it or to feel the width of the satellite tumor, forget about measuring it. The only guesses is:

    1) tumor has reduced in size

    or

    2) for unknown reason, I just can't locate that little tumor

    Oh, I had missed that, sorry.

    The only case of Fibrosarcoma I have had here was Uncle Albert. His cancer was in his mouth. As you probably know, Fibrosarcoma may not be likely to spread elsewhere, but the tumour often regrows even if it is removed.

    I am reluctant to suggest any topical treatments for your Rabbit as I am not qualified to do so and I do not have any experience of any other case expect for that of Uncle A x

    Those Manuka honey is doing magic for Bobby. It's only been 1 day, I can see the wound looks better. It's like there is a shield covering his wound. Like there is a crystal layer of glue sealing that spot. And the skin reacts to it in a positive way. I wish I know about this Manuka honey trick years earlier.

    The people who used it has already used it in other animals like birds or horses.

    They tell me to buy this:

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00SSC6TBQ...AbS850094?th=1

    They then said to me: "Manuka honey is the strongest anti macrobiotic and used successfully to treat wounds. the Stronger the Manuka count, the higher the healing properties. You can buy on Amazon but make sure it's certified by the Manuka institute or it's counterfeit. Here is a good brand I have used Happy Valley UMF 15+ Manuka Honey, 250g (8.8oz)"

    but I don't have time to wait and get it from amazon. So I just buy it locally. And it works

    Hi Jason

    Any honey will work as a topical antibiotic, but Manuka Honey (medical grade) is even better.

    I discovered it about 25 years ago and began using it to heal rabbit abscesses when vets just didn't know what to do ...

    Good stuff

    My Vet has advised the use of Manuka Honey for things such as open abscesses and to aid certain types of wound healing. Aswell as the high UMF factor Manuka Honey there are surgical dressings impregnated with manuka honey
