The wound usually get reddish called healthy granulation tissue before finally healing. May be you are in the process; Rate of healing also depends on severity and mode of burn.
Pain should also subside then initial severity.
If you think it is really not improving then you may have developed local infection.
You should apply Tenovate-GM/Lobate-GM and Fucidin alternately every 6hourly for 7 days.
Local vitamin E do not have any role in healing and should be stopped.
If your symptoms do not come down in 3 days then you should also start an oral antibiotic like Levofloxacin 500mg orally daily.
You must wear a loose sterile dressings all the time.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
