Go to urgent care: Go to an urgent care center for a prescription for silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) or bactroban ointment. They may also give you an oral antibiotic to cover staphylococcus aureus and pseudomonas bacterial infection if needed. Once it heals, biafine emulsion or scarguard may be helpful in minimizing scarring.
