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

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

Is there anything I can do to speed up the healing process of a burn and prevent blisters?

1st or 2nd degree: Blisters develop in a more serious burn, called a second degree burn. If you have a first degree burn it isn't going to blister later. Cool the burn under cool (not cold) running water for 10 or 15 minutes or until the pain subsides. Don't ice it. If it is very large even though not blistered have it looked at. ...Read more

Do blisters from 2nd degree burns resolve on their own or do they need to be lanced? How long is healing process? How can I expect it to look after?

Do blisters from 2nd degree burns resolve on their own or do they need to be lanced? How long is healing process? How can I expect it to look after?

Leave them be!: Most physicians say that blisters less than 2cm in diameter should be left alone unless they appear infected. I recommend you see a physician for this. The issue of scaring can be variable. One recommendation is to use a high SPF sunscreen on the burn area for 3 to 6 months if exposed to the sun. This will limit pigment changes. Tetanus status is also important. Best choice is to see a Dr. ...Read more

Burn on thumb from hot steam. Very red. Looks patchy or maybe "future blisters" (hard to tell) Internet keeps saying hand burns need to be treated differently. What is best treatment and does being on hand change that? Pain is decreasing. Thanks

Burn on thumb from hot steam. Very red. Looks patchy or maybe "future blisters" (hard to tell) Internet keeps saying hand burns need to be treated differently. What is best treatment and does being on hand change that? Pain is decreasing. Thanks

Size matters here: Any burn's seriousness & urgency of treatment depends on how big the wound is, what caused it, and how deep. Typically steam from a tea kettle or hot food will be first or second degree. The area, if small and getting less painful and is not surrounding the whole finger or a joint can be treated like any other minor burn. Silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) helps the pain (but is a prescription). Keep clean, protect area. ...Read more

I have freezer burn. Is blistering a good sign or no? How long will this last and scarring? What should I use to get rid of it?

Good evening, suffered severe burn wounds on my left lower leg & foot. Removed skin / blisters last night, tonight very pain full & cannot stand on le?

Infection possible: You may need to seek immediate attention. If there’s swelling, pus, streaking red lines, you are likely to have soft tissue infection or cellulitis. Elevate your leg, keep wounds clean, and watch for those signs and for weeping, or fevers. Depending on the amount of surface area of the burns and the depth, this could be very serious. If fever or streaking red lines up your leg, go to emergency! ...Read more
