For a small second degree burn that happened 3 hours ago, do I need to put silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) cream on it? Is it available over the counter?
Protect it: An unpopped blister represents a closed sterile environment. Yes on occasion one can become infected then it is time to open it, however the risk of infection in a dressed open wound is still higher than that of an intact blister. The blister will gradually resolve with time i wouldn't use an ointment on blisters at all silva dine no help now.See 3 more doctor answers

Small second degree burn, got a blister popped by the doctor;its been 2weeks , inside skin is red, swollen with bubbles and itches a lot. Is it normal?
Normal Healing: Burns are the response of the tissues to injury from heat. It is simply inflammation which means increase blood flow to the area to promote healing. Depth determines care. Do not use ice worsens already injured skin. Cool water soaks help as can taking anti-inflammation medicines like Motrin or advil (ibuprofen). Avoid any further damage as this can cause scarring . Good skin cream applied daily/gently helps.See 1 more doctor answer
Small (1cm x20mm) second degree burn red for a few days, scabbed over,, scab is now slightly green. Infected or fine?
Partial thickness: These burns are defined as superficial or deep partial thickness burns. This means some of the key parts of the skin to allow for closure of the wound are in place. However surgery may still be needed in some cases or depending on location, complications. Often people can recognize these burns by the appearance of blisters.
Skin antimicrobials: Second-degree burns will heal on their own, given good wound care and good nutrition. Burns on the face should be gooped up with antibiotic ointment several times a day; no dressings are necessary. Burn wounds elsewhere can have antibiotic ointment or silver sulfadiazine applied and then dressed with dressing changes daily in conjunction with a bath/shower.See 1 more doctor answer
It depends: Superficial second degree burns can be exposed to air fairly soon. Deeper burns with blisters should be protected until all of the blisters have been decompressed. All burns should be coated with thin film of antibiotic ointment or a white cream called silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) until the skin is fully healed.See 1 more doctor answer
Burns stage: First degree is red tender like a sunburn with no blisters and heals without a problem. Second degree is deeper involves the epidermis and part of dermis layer of the skin if all the dermis is burned it is third degree second usually heals but if deep dermis can leave scars or pigment changes.
Second degree burns: Are defined by the presence of blisters, but can range from very shallow to very deep. In general, the best treatment (in my opinion) is to remove the blisters to prevent the possibility of a closed space infection. Wash with soap and water, pat dry and apply Bacitracin ointment and a dry dressing 2-3 times/day. If increasing pain, drainage or redness or if not healed in two weeks, see a doctor.
Burns: First degree burns are like a sun burn. One of the best medicines I have recommended is aloe vera (pure), it works very well. Both first and second degree burns at the time they occur ice can help is used immediately but second degree burns often need more attention and i would recommend seeing a doctor for this . It may need to be cleaned up and treated appropriately to prevent infection.
