Suggest remedy for burns on the legs below the knee
Regular dressing with gelonet paraffin gauze,continue silverex
Thanks for the query
I would request you to attach the picture again as it is not showing here.The thermal burn can be of varying depth.But most of the silencer burn I have seen are superficial in nature.
Maintaining hygiene is of utmost importance to prevent infection.Clean your hand every time with soap in running water before handling the wound.You can use hand rub(sterilium) for better protection.
The main problem in burn injury is dressing and superadded infection.Using jelonet paraffin gauze for dressing is a better option as it prevents the drying up of wound and thus prevent adhesion and bleeding.Apply silverex ointment(it act as an antibiotic and helps in healing) over the burn wound twice a day and then cover it with jelonet. Apply the ointment by making a film so that the skin can get the oxygen,don't make a cake.
I would like to give him ibugesic syrup to relieve the pain and oral antibiotic like combination of amicillin and cloxacillin or amoxycillin and clavulanate as a prophylactic antibiotic.Giving Zinc with multivitamin syrup helps in better and early healing of wound.All these are prescription medicine and please get it prescribed by a physician.
Once the skin lesion starts healing application of Elovera ointment will help in faster healing and prevention of scar.
I hope this answers your query.
I shall be glad to answer if you have any more query.
Wish your child speedy recovery.
Sorry for inconvenience
I am extremely sorry for the inconvenience.I have gone through the image and it is showing that there is only epidermal burn with some redness.
In this situation application of silverex with some analgesic like ibuprofen is sufficient, if there is no further blister formation.It should recover in two to three days.
Thank you very much
