Hi dear the cream prescribed to u is good. And ll surely help in healing. Ya aloe and vit e do help i bit. Mainly they soothen the skin and maintain skin texture. Use it daily twice. All these ll help but third degree burns are bound to leave some scar. For that further management may be needed. Thank u

Hi thanks for your question
Panderm cream is antibacterail,antifungal and anti inflammatory cream.Since your burns have already healed and have formed scar,it has no role.Cream containing Aloca,Vera and vitamin E is good for soothing.
Hope this answers your question.
