I have a small one inch cut that is likely infected. Can I treat it with Manuka honey? How long will that take to heal? There is concerning swelling.

In brief: Infected Cut

I have no idea what the honey will do.
I do know what antibiotics will do to treat infections. My advice, see a doctor for an evaluation.
