Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Silvadene will help with any infection and soreness.

If you do not have any pain or oozing, then you can use a steroid cream to avoid scarring.

Hydrocortisone cream can be used daily.

Natural remedies also work.

You can try honey and turmeric paste over the wound daily to help with healing and prevent scarring.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
