Silver sulfadiazine is way over kill for a 1st or 2nd degree burn, unless the second degree is quite latge and the skin is really hanging there with a lot of exposed skin. Burns rarely infect anyway as the heat sterilizes them. Burn dressings work fine (hydrocolloidal) and polysporin is fine too-we use more to keep the skin supple and not cracked than anything else. Pain comes from air on the exposed nerve endings. Getting a burn dressing on and occluding the area is the best. It is prudent to keep a box of burn dressings int he first aid kit.

Silvadene shouldn't be used willy-nilly. It is indicated for wounds that are infected, likely to get infected, or wounds in which an infection would be catastrophic. People who aren't instructed in its use will tend to smear it everywhere, not realizing that it tends to irritate normal skin--and will actually inhibit the late stages of wound healing.

Silver sulfadiazine, a sulfa drug, is used to prevent and treat infections of second- and third-degree burns. It kills a wide variety of bacteria. This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information. Answered by Felicia Dillashaw 1 year ago.

I have used silver sulfadiazine for sunburn before and it works great on that. It is used for treating a bacterial infection in a burn. While doctors can prescribe this for other uses, I would not recommend using it for an itch or rash until you have talked with your doctor to determine what is causing the rash. Silver Sulfadiazine can be used only against bacteria, not viral infections. Also, the common side effects are hives; itching; rash; redness; skin discoloration... therefore it may not be useful in treating itching skin, unless the itch is caused by a bacteria. Answered by Andre Kever 1 year ago.

Silver Sulfadiazine is an antibiotic burn cream. It is used to prevent or treat serious infection from burns. I would not use it for bug bites. For bug bites; scrub the bite well with soap and water, let it dry, then rub hydrocortisone cream into the bite. Put another dab of hydrocortisone right on top, and then cover it with a band-aid. For heat rash; baby diaper cream works well. If either are severe then you might need to go to the doctor... Answered by Margit Szczepanik 1 year ago.

Asked by Suzann Biondo 1 year ago.

I don't recommend it. Silvadene (Silver Sulfadiazine) is a cream used for deep tissue burns. It's kind of neat because the silver has anti microbial properties. Anyway, if you are talking about bikini rash, I would put some Vitamin E on the affected area. It is an antioxidant that protects and heals our skin. :) Answered by Veronika Holzer 1 year ago.

Silver is the great antibiotic available on the market. It's not a mildew like most antibiotics, but it kills every micro organism. It is risk-free, and has been used for hundreds of years. Use it. And be thankful your health care professional determined to have you ever use it. They simply use it for the worst occasions and infections similar to burns. The colour trade is usual. You're so blessed your healthcare professional gave this to you. Most antibiotics will handiest kill some bacteria, however silver will kill them all. You're going to be good soon.

Silvadene shouldn't be used willy-nilly. It is indicated for wounds that are infected, likely to get infected, or wounds in which an infection would be catastrophic. People who aren't instructed in its use will tend to smear it everywhere, not realizing that it tends to irritate normal skin--and will actually inhibit the late stages of wound healing.

Anyone know anything about the medicine called Silver sulfadiazine cream for skin?
I have some bug bites and rash on my skin that is constantly itching. I have some cream for burns, so I was wondering if it helped a burn on the skin, that it may help my rash and bites? Does anyone know? Thanx Asked by Lakeesha Desatnik 1 year ago.

Silver sulfadiazine, a sulfa drug, is used to prevent and treat infections of second- and third-degree burns. It kills a wide variety of bacteria. This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information. Answered by Zora Bahl 1 year ago.

I have used silver sulfadiazine for sunburn before and it works great on that. It is used for treating a bacterial infection in a burn. While doctors can prescribe this for other uses, I would not recommend using it for an itch or rash until you have talked with your doctor to determine what is causing the rash. Silver Sulfadiazine can be used only against bacteria, not viral infections. Also, the common side effects are hives; itching; rash; redness; skin discoloration... therefore it may not be useful in treating itching skin, unless the itch is caused by a bacteria. Answered by Deb Camarero 1 year ago.

Silver Sulfadiazine is an antibiotic burn cream. It is used to prevent or treat serious infection from burns. I would not use it for bug bites. For bug bites; scrub the bite well with soap and water, let it dry, then rub hydrocortisone cream into the bite. Put another dab of hydrocortisone right on top, and then cover it with a band-aid. For heat rash; baby diaper cream works well. If either are severe then you might need to go to the doctor... Answered by Susanne Vaeza 1 year ago.

Can you use silver sulfadiazine cream on burning rashes around bikini area?
Asked by Hosea Ellicott 1 year ago.

I don't recommend it. Silvadene (Silver Sulfadiazine) is a cream used for deep tissue burns. It's kind of neat because the silver has anti microbial properties. Anyway, if you are talking about bikini rash, I would put some Vitamin E on the affected area. It is an antioxidant that protects and heals our skin. :) Answered by Doretta Chapoton 1 year ago.

Silver is the great antibiotic available on the market. It's not a mildew like most antibiotics, but it kills every micro organism. It is risk-free, and has been used for hundreds of years. Use it. And be thankful your health care professional determined to have you ever use it. They simply use it for the worst occasions and infections similar to burns. The colour trade is usual. You're so blessed your healthcare professional gave this to you. Most antibiotics will handiest kill some bacteria, however silver will kill them all. You're going to be good soon.

I have heard some say to apply 'Neosporin' or similiar triple antibiotic ointment to 1st & minor 2nd degree burns, but then i hear also not to use these applications because they are petrolatum based & will trap heat in the wound, causing further damage & discomfort. What is the correct treatment? What is an ample amount of time for a minor burn to cool before applying a antibiotic?, or should you just apply silver-sulfadiazine? Also what is the best application for pain in a minor burn? Thanks! any productive feedback is appreciated. Answered by Genoveva Rannels 1 year ago.

Silver sulfadiazine is way over kill for a 1st or 2nd degree burn, unless the second degree is quite latge and the skin is really hanging there with a lot of exposed skin. Burns rarely infect anyway as the heat sterilizes them. Burn dressings work fine (hydrocolloidal) and polysporin is fine too-we use more to keep the skin supple and not cracked than anything else. Pain comes from air on the exposed nerve endings. Getting a burn dressing on and occluding the area is the best. It is prudent to keep a box of burn dressings int he first aid kit.

How often should I use silver sulfadiazine on a rug burn? And why?????? Asked by Norbert Markiewicz 1 year ago.

Silver sulfadiazine is the ointment of choice for burns of any type. It helps heal and prevents infection. It is normally re-applied twice a day. Keep the rug burn covered if possible . (SS will stain clothes, btw). Apply only a thin layer and if you use your fingers to put it on...be sure you wash them well before you do. Answered by Dusti Mussmann 1 year ago.
