Comparative Study between Glycerin Magnesium Sulfate and Honey Dressing for Cellulitis
Dhruva Dave | Darshan Gajera 
Abstract: Background: Cellulitis is essentially an acute inflammatory condition of the skin which is most commonly caused by indigenous flora colonies of the skin appendages. It is characterised by localised erythema, swelling, heat and localised pain. Methods: This is an observational study consisting of 20 patients (sample size) who presented at N and Hospital, Vasna - Bhayli, Vadodara between March 2022 and October 2022, with cellulitis. They underwent proper history taking, examination and investigations before being admitted and treated. Honey was used as a topical agent for the dressing on 10 patients while the other 10 were subjected to glycerin magnesium sulfate dressing. Results: Honey dressing proved itself to be superior to Glycerin Magnesium Sulfate dressing since there were no signs of skin irritation, inflammation, erythema, non - adherence during the removal of dressing. The duration of hospital stay and time of recovery was significantly lesser than the patients with glycerin magnesium sulfate dressing. Conclusions: Honey being a biological bactericidal agent which is cheap and readily available in India, stands to have lesser side effects and better efficacy than chemically produced glycerin magnesium sulfate.
