'Medihoney' barrier cream now available on drug tariff

  • Comment
Nurses are now able to prescribe a barrier cream containing honey (Medihoney).

The manufacturers claim the cream can be applied to intact and at-risk skin to provide protection from body fluids and moisture.

They suggest it can be used around wounds and under skin folds, where a protective barrier will help prevent skin breakdown.

The Cream can also be applied under wound dressings and body worn incontinence pads.
