    This is a miracle cream! I was prescribed it for an open wound on my stomach from medical tape taking my skin off. It healed up wonderfully in a few days. Then, I spilled a cup of boiling water on my hand a few months later. I put this cream on it and within 2 hours the swelling in my hand went down and the redness was gone. That was only one application. Too bad you can only get it with an Rx.

    I had a fairly decent second degree burn on my chest from a curling iron, I had been using otc triple antibiotic cream which didn't get me anywhere. After one use I could already tell it was working. In less than a week it has healed the surrounding area almost completely I still have a ways to go with the main part of the burn but I will keep this on hand for future burns!

    In the emergency room they used Silvadene on my burn which worked great. When I got my prescription filled at the pharmacy they substituted the generic. The generic did not work as well. It was more difficult to spread over a large burned area and it did not totally stop the discomfort as the Silvadene did. It also dried out faster than the Silvadene.
