Silvadine ointment is 1% silver sulfasalazine and is a prescription cream used for burns on the skin.

you have to get a doctor in your American Samoa to prescribe it to you, and you can then use that prescription to pick it up at the drug store.

we are not allowed to give out prescriptions to clients we can't see online

you should not use it if you are allergic to sulfa medications.
