Honey remedy to treat a pilonidal cyst


Treating your pilonidal cyst with honey is a wise decision on your part. Honey is so potent in healing certain sores and other skin ailments that it is even used by medical doctors and alternative health care practitioners in certain parts of the world to treat various diseases.

Truly a gift from nature, honey is the only food in the universe that does not spoil. That should give you some indication as to its powerful and unnusual natural qualities.

How to use honey to treat a pilonidal cyst

Always clean the area first with an antibacterial soap before applying.

First, make sure you’re using 100% raw honey. Much of the generic honey you find in the supermarket is only 50% honey and 50% corn syrup. Always read the label before purchasing.

Using honey to treat your cyst is a fairly simple process. Just take some high quality honey and apply generously around the wound. Honey is rather sticky, so covering it with a porous gauze dressing makes sense and will save you from having a messy situation with your underwear.

Change the dressing a couple of times a day.

Is all honey the same?

While most honey is the same in terms of chemical composition, Manuka honey is the only honey in the world that has a special non-peroxide (UMF) activity factor that inhibits Helicobacter Pylori and other virus causing bacteria.

If I had to choose a top quality honey, I’d probably go with Manuka Honey by Healthy Honey Shop, a specific type of honey made from bees in New Zealand.

The wonderful thing about Manuka honey is that it is so versatile. It’s unique properties can help heal a huge range of conditions from stomach ulcers to infections, as well as increasing your energy levels and general well-being.

    I’m 35 years old and am experiencing my very first cyst. Yeah i know this isnt supposed to happen so late in life. lucky me! So i started putting the manuka huney on it.

    I’m actually familiar with it before coming here. My God mother who is originally from New Zealand uses it for EVERYTHING. and I mean every sickness or illness you can think of and it really works.

    anyway, after about 3 days, swelling is coming down and the pain has dissipated as well. Keep some around whenever you get a flare up.

    But get manuka honey, not reg honey. Manuka is the best honey in the world without a doubt and you can use it for evrything.

    Manuka Honey was a life saver for me. I got a pilonidal cyst back in May and started increasing my intake of honey (spicefically manuka honey) and also constantly putting it on the cyst. It healed it right up in one week. Even now i dont have pilonidal any more, i still eat the honey. Just one teaspoon a day is all you need with this. it taste great, i use it instead of sugar and it gives me soooo much energy now.

    I have to chime in here. Manuka honey is everything he says it is in the above article. I used it on my sons pilonidal cyst and it helped with the pain tremendously. It doesnt get rid of the cyst completely, but it does help with the pain. You can also use it for alot of other stuff too. It has so many different uses for it. Get a jar and u wont be sorry.

      Hi Leslie,

      I too have used honey on numerous occasions and while your right in that it does not make the abscess go away, it does help with the pain. I used to put a hot towel over it and that seemed to help too. I just started Mr Lynches remedy and I have to admit it seems to be working. I started on Thursday and today it is sooooo much more comfortable and smaller then before. It’s been draining lost and lots of disgusting pus and I think that’s why im not in pain anymore. Ive dealt with this thing for going on 3 years now when I was 17 and it has made my life a living hell. Literally!! I’m so glad I found this site and this treatment.thanks
