In brief: Silvadene (silver sulfadiazine)

Check with your radiation doctor first.
I usually give prescription for silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) since its inexpensive. However there are other preparations. Clean the skin gently with dove or dial soap and water using only your hand. Do not scrub with anything even a wash cloth. Then apply the silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) twice a day and no other tape or gauze. When washing each day you do not have get all the silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) off.
