I use Manuka frequently with deep infected wounds in hogs. It helps to drain and dry them and works excellently. However it is never used on it’s own, it’s always part of a treatment plan
I also use it on myself. I have never had pain and have never had a hog in pain with it so I suspect you may have had an allergic reaction to it.
Iodine is also a good cleaner if you aren’t allergic to it, but some are
The best treatment for wounds is F10 which you can get in various guises. It kill’s fly eggs and maggots. It also kills fleas and ticks and causes no distress to the animal.
All injured animals should be taken to an experienced carer or vet without delay
