Sensitive care protective barrier 3, Hydrocortisone But rate Cream 0.1%, Aristocrat Cream 0.1% and Nutrashield I do not have a credit card or any means to pay online.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I am sorry for the burn episode you had. Neither of medications you have will help with the burn. You need to buy Silver Sulfadiazine cream and apply locally until improvement. Then, can apply sensitive care protective barrier. But not now. Just buy Silver Sulfadiazine cream.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
