HI thanks for writing here.It seems that you have got first degree burn where only epidermal layer is damaged .You need not to be worry much about this.Instead of POLYMYXIN B you can try t bact cream where yellow water is getting out,since there may be secondary infection and polymyxin is not sufficient.You can also take oral antibiotics like amoxyclav ,take tablets vitamin c as they will promote faster healing,but if there is deeper wounds then you need to consult a plastic surgeon.
