About a month ago a lovely older gentlemen showed up at my front door to purchase some honey. It was for his son, who was unfortunately suffering a debilitating skin disorder located on his face.
He called up again this week. They were almost out of honey and needed a little more. When he arrived he told me that his son had just been to the dermatologist. Apparently, she couldn't believe the improvement! She said that she had planned on prescribing a special cream, but now saw no need to, and that they should just keep on doing whatever they were doing.
So, two pounds of honey later, he was on his way. The dermatologist is on vacation for the next couple of weeks, but I can't wait to talk to her when she returns. I know honey is great for the skin, but want to learn more about it's effect on whatever his particular disorder is.
Seems like the number of ailments that are happily treated with honey continues to grow, day by day...
