I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

The vaginal and perineal burns are considered as serious burns, even if they are superficial. There is a risk of infection, scarring and contracture. There are specific burn cream like Silver Sulfadiazine, which is recommended for the burns. You need to be evaluated immediately by your doctor. The blisters need needling to remove the fluid as they may breed bacteria (this fluid contains lot of proteins which facilitate the growth of infective organisms).

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
