Hi there Suma.
The burn on your hand you say is due to steam & i note the size.
I do hope you are not allergic to sulfas & if so, stop silverex.
Yes there will be a mark formed but will resolve with time & one will have to re-evaluate after about 1 mth
I would recommend a cream like Dipgenta (corticosteroid +gentamycin
) first for 3-5 days & then shift to silverex. Use both sparingly so as not to form a 'cake' on the surface but enough such that it is absorbed into the skin & the skin gets to breathe.
After a week when it appears healed, you may go for a cream from Bioderma (french company) called Cicabio or Elovera (Ranbaxy) depending on your budget & the region you hail from
If from Bangalore, do come across & allow us to visualise in person. If from any other place in India, do use the HCM directory to help find a good dermatologist
nearest you on the ground.
Good luck & here's to a clear skin soon!
