This study was a comparative experimental study in anatomical pathology laboratory medical faculty of Lampung University using 15 white rats divided into 3 groups: 5 rats control group which was only given burns (group 1), 5 rats that was given burns and honey topically (group 2) and 5 rats that was given burns and hydrogel topically (group 3). The clinical healing and histopathologic picture were performed. Statistical analysis performed using One Way Anova test and Post Hoc LSD test. The test results showed no significant difference between the honey and the hydrogel group (p = 0.861 and p = 0.502).
