Honey placed on the wound acts as a barrier to protect the wound from the outside world, preventing infection. It seems weird at first thought, since honey sticks to everything it touches, but when you watch the thick honey congeal on your wound, you'll see that it may catch dirt on the surface but there's no way that dirt is going to penetrate in to your body. Honey can heal wounds not only by acting as a protective barrier from disease but also has properties which dull the pain. Honey is a natural anti-inflammatory. And it'll keep your wounds moist enough not to hurt while they are healing but it won't prevent the healing process from occurring. You can use honey to heal wounds simply by rubbing it on to the wound (after cleaning it out with water of course). Or you can use it in addition to other wound remedies; placing it on the wound and then covering the wound with a bandage.
Apple cider vinegar is the most commonly used healing vinegar. Vinegar also helps to heal wounds by preventing the spread of bacteria. It may speed up the healing process and it also reduces the itchiness that comes along when a wound is healing.
Use a clean cloth and press down for 10 minutes to stop bleeding. If bleeding continues and cloth has become wet, apply another cloth on top of the earlier one with more pressure. Then elevate the wound above heart level to slow blood flow. However if sharp objects like nail or needle have punctured wounds then encourage bleeding as a part of cleansing.
Cleanse the wound and keep it clean to avoid infection. If scraped skin has dirt particles adhering, remove them with tweezers that are washed and dipped in alcohol.
Licking the wound is beneficial, because saliva acts as a disinfectant (kills bacteria) and promotes healing.
To protect the wound from further injury and to keep the wound clean, adhesive bandage can be used. But it has to be changed frequently.
