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.

My doctor made a wise choice as per usual. I had no idea of the power of this med until I searched online. It checked the early stage of infection from the start of use. I will be cautious in its use and enjoy watching the healing of my 2nd degree motorcycle exhaust would 4" above the ankle bone.

Used this on second and third degree burn (sunburn) and it worked wonders by immediately taking away the sting and healing the burn quickly.
