Discussions that mention silvadene

Burns & Injuries board


Hi - I'm new to this board. Burned my wrist last night with hot water and coffee grounds from the coffeemaker. Immeidately put it under cold water for a few minutes then wrapped in cool compress. Last night there was only a small blister on the side of my wrist and the rest looked like a bad sunburn. This morning the whole area was one huge blister.

I wrapped it in gauze and went to the dr today. He said it was a nice second degree burn and prescribed Silvadene creme. I know this is great stuff for burns.

About how long should this take to heal? I know not to break the blisters.

Thanks for any info.

Mary
