Hi, thanks for posting your query.

Your sister seems to have developed second degree burns due to spilling of hot sambar.

Chances of infection are very common in this type of burns that is why she has been given silverex cream. Continue this cream.

Don't pinch the bubbles at all. They form a protective barrier and have a role in prevention from infection. The fluid in it will get absorbed slowly and finally there will be crust formation which will fall off. Then the mark will be visible which may be hypo or hyper pigmented and can be managed accordingly with creams.

Hope this solves your query.

Wish her a speedy recovery.

Take care
