Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
I am sorry, but silvadene is prescription only
What kind of burns do you have and from what
thermal burn from hot alumiun
How big is the area
approx. 4 inches long on top of hand and forearm
You can make a homemade type of silvadene too
can you give me the "receipe"
you can mix hydrocortisone cream, bacitracin, Benadryl cream and Eucerin cream
This is about as close as you can get to Silvadene
I hope this helps, If you have more questions, please ask, and Please Click on ACCEPT, as this would be appreciated for my time and service, thank you.
will this also help for scarring/permanant discoloration?
Yes, the hydrocortisione ( the steroid portion) helps a bit - but nothing is perfect - but as a surgeon - I inject steroids in to wounds when I close them - and I think it seems to help
If you have more questions, please do ask
how often should i apply and should i cover burn w/ burn gause?
Actually once or twice per day, I would only keep the area covered when you sleep - otherwise keep it open - this will allow faster healing
Your very welcome - Please click on ACCEPT as this is how Just Answer compensates us, thank you
Have a good evening
sorry one more ? should i mix equal portins
Yes, if you can get a container with an airtight lid - such as one of those Glad containers, put all the ingredients from each tube, and then mix together - and you will have a 'tub' of medication you can apply like Silvadene.
