In brief: Yes
Honey has been shown to help in the healing of wounds by being antimicrobial among other features.
Companies sell dressings with medical grade ( sterilized / laboratory tested ) honey.

In brief: Depends
There is medical grade honey that weird as it sounds does actually help to heal wounds but it has to be a special type of wound.
Please see a specialist in wound care or vascular surgery.
