Arrow Honey Cures Dandruff and Scaly/Itchy Scalp

Honey can be an effective treatment for chronic dandruff or scaly/itchy scalp (seborrheic dermatitis)...



Quote:
In the study, twenty male patients and 10 females, between the ages of 15 and 60 years, presented with scaling, itching and hair loss with lesions described as "scaling macules, papules and dry white plaques with crust and fissures."

The patients were instructed to apply diluted crude honey (90% honey diluted in warm water) every other day on the lesions with gentle rubbing for 2-3 minutes. After 3 hours, the honey was gently rinsed with warm water.

The patients were monitored for changes in itching, scaling, hair loss and lesions during the treatment period, which lasted 4 weeks. The results of the study were remarkable:

"Itching was relieved and scaling was disappeared within one week. Skin lesions were healed and disappeared completely within 2 weeks. In addition, patients showed subjective improvement in hair loss."

Additionally, those patients who saw improvement in the initial phase of treatment were enrolled in a 'prophylactic phase,' intended to prevent relapse, lasting six months. The results were reported as followed:

"Half patients were treated with the topical honey once weekly and the other half served as control. All the patients responded markedly with application of honey.

Itching was relieved and scaling was disappeared within one week. Skin lesions were healed and disappeared completely within 2 weeks. In addition, patients showed subjective improvement in hair loss. None of the patients ( 15 patients) treated with honey application once weekly for six months showed relapse while the 12/15 patients who had no prophylactic treatment with honey experienced a relapse of the lesions 2-4 months after stopping treatment."

The conclusion of the study was that, "crude honey could markedly improve seborrheic dermatitis and associated hair loss and prevent relapse when applied weekly."

Honey is a natural antibiotic so the study is not surprising.
