My 10 yr old was taken to a friends pool, while I was at work and allowed to swim with no sunscrren for 4 hours, being a fair skinned red head, he now has 2nd and 3rd degree sunburns.
I had him at the ER yesterday, the gave him silvadine(sp) and hydrocodone for the pain, I am supposed to clean his burns with tepid water and antibacterial soap twice a day and apply the slivadine to his burns...aside from being my youngest, I am hopelessly his Mom and listening to him SCREAM while I am trying everything under the sun to get the old cream off in order to apply the new cream, is breaking my heart.
Does anyone know, of ANYTHING that helps to remove the old silvadine?...on his skin, it dries to like a thick tacky glue substance and it is HE** to get off of him, aside from scrbbing, I have tried soaking him, tried wet cotton balls, soft cotton ( ripped $70 brand new bed sheets up this morning
Please, if anyone knows anything else to try, I would so appriciate any advice.
Thanks so Much
