Since 2009 I have been using Propolis for treating wounds and sores on carp, including myself! The one I use is marketed for use on Koi carp and is sold by NTLabs a leading specialist in this field. https://www.ntlabs.co.uk/browse-products/outdoor/koi-care/propolis-wound-seal/ It's easy to use and very effective. Simply shake the bottle and tip drops onto the affected area gently rubbing it all over. you will find that it will not 'run-off' like other treatments do. Then pour water onto it to form a waxy coating that seals the area completely. Watch the film for a full demonstration of its use.
Propolis functions as the immune system of the beehive. It is a natural substance produced by honeybees to strengthen and protect their hive from bacterial mold and viruses. It contains properties that increase and strengthen our body’s natural resistance to disease by stimulating our body’s immune system.
Its antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties make its application as a topical agent unrivaled in effectiveness among natural healing substances. It promotes skin cell renewal by up to 30%, softens and smoothes dry chaffed skin, eases skin irritations, promotes a younger healthier looking skin, and is breathable as in a liquid bandage.
Propolis contains vitamins B1, B2, C and E, essential minerals, amino acids and powerful flavonoids. The antioxidant effects of bioflavonoids, one of the most important components in Propolis, may help to maintain a healthy immune system.
