Post-operative application of propolis for wound healing purposes.

This presentation is about a rare case of oral hemangioma on the dorsal surface of the tongue. Oral hemangiomas often cause symptoms such as pain, bleeding, difficulty chewing and breathing. The patient was treated with conventional surgical procedures and was asked to apply postoperative application of propolis extract on the surgical wound. Throughout the recovery period, the patient noted the lack of pain in the surgical wound to the point that she opted to not consume the prescribed the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). The patient also had a noticeable improvement in terms of wound healing. Propolis appears to be a suitable adjunctive treatment for oral applications.
