Can you please suggest treatment for horrible 2nd degree burns?

Seek Treatment

Sunburn
Deep 2nd degree burns need medical attention and script for Silvadene cream to help with pain and antibacterial. These can become infected and convert to full thickness loss (3rd degree). Needs careful care and dressings. Do not ignore these. Sometimes loss/excess of skin pigment can occur along with surface scarring which is permanent

I recently sustained 2nd degree burns and was wondering best treatment in reducing scars. I've been using silvadene but what about aloe Gel vs plant?

Silvadene

Burns
I suggest you stick with the Silvadene and see what's left of the burn sites before you apply anything else. I'm always impressed by how well Silvadene works to prevent infection and reduce scarring. If you're still uncertain have a medical practitioner take a look.

Is there an effective treatment for first degree burns?

A remedy

Burns
Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) can reduce redness, pain, itching & swelling from a burn. It has anesthetic, anti-inflammatory & antibacterial / antifungal qualities. It can speed burn healing by stimulating growth of new skin. Apply cool compresses. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatories and acetomenophen can be very helpful. Hydrate well.

Can any doc tell me what's the best treatment for 3rd degree burns?

If you truly have...

Heat_intolerance
a 3rd-degree, or full-thickness, burn, unless it is very small or narrow and can heal in from the sides, it will need to be skin grafted to fully heal it. Partial-thickness (i.e., 2nd-degree) burns will heal in 1 to 3 weeks. If your wound is not fully healed after 3 weeks, you should see a general, plastic, or burn surgeon.

2nd degree burn infected, treatment?

Can happen

Sunburn
This does not happen often but can be treated with topical medications - polysporin, bacitracin etc. Cleaning the skin is important. It is also smart to see a doctor if the skin is red and painful.

Help please? What is the best scar treatment for a large 1st-2nd degree burn on the leg?

Time

Sunburn
1st and 2nd degree burns do not usually scar. However, they can cause uneven pigmentation. Swelling in particular can cause the area to darken (wraps & support hose may help). Usually, once healed, the most important thing is to protect the area from injury and it is very important to avoid sun exposure to the area for at least the 1st year. Otherwise, moisturize as needed.
