Brief Answer:
I prefer Silver sulfadiazine cream.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
I prefer Silver sulfadiazine cream to other antibiotic creams.
Treatment depends on the size of the burn wound.If it is small,regular cleaning and dressing after Silver sulfadiazine cream is sufficient. If it is big,I apply Collagen sheet over the burnt area for better and quick healing.
So,please consult your doctor, get examined clinically and proceed accordingly.
Nothing to worry. It will be healed soon.
Hope I answered your query. If you have any questions, I will clarify further.
Wish you good health.
