Will umf  15 manuka honey heal spider bites?

That and others: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, and bleach solutions.

Neither, but...: There are a variety of false claims on the internet about how they can help cancer patients.

Is manuka honey as good as professional claim and what can it be used for?

Not professional: It is touted to have high anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial activities. The medical grade is likely helpful when used topically on wounds to control or prevent infection. However I am highly doubtful that it can be used to prevent cancer, control diabetes, or treat a systemic infection. Anything that sounds too good is too good to be true. Like the acai craze, this too shall pass. ...Read more
