I am sorry, but silvadene is prescription only
Thermal burn from hot aluminum 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
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
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
Should i mix equal portions
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.
