Sprue can be very disturbing and painful. Also it's position in the mouth can damage appetite and affect health, especially in children. Fortunately, there is an easy way to healig the sprue.

According to a recent study in the journal Quintessence International, honey has the same effect as safe and effective with corticosteroid ointment commonly used for sprue.

In a study from Saudi Arabia, the researchers divided 94 subjects with 180 sprue randomly into three groups. One group was given honey for treatment, and two other groups were given corticosteroid ointment or a protective paste.

All participants were asked to wipe wet cotton on their blisters, then apply a given medicine, every after meal for eight days, or stop its use when the sprue are completely healed.

They were also asked to record levels of pain and other reactions. At the same time, the researchers also evaluated the size and inflammation of their sprue.

The result: people with sprue who treat it with honey have fewer painful days (only one day, instead of 3-5 days), and a faster reduction in size and inflammation than two other medicine.

Previous research has shown, honey has anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, which is the reason why researchers are trying to use it to cure sprue.
