I have 2nd degree burn with blisters. How should I treat this ?
Have you seen a doctor yet? If you have second degree burns I would suggest that you please see a doctor first.
How big an area is this burn? You don't usually take an antibiotic for burns, unless they get infected. If its a large area you need to see a dr. Do not coat the burn with anything, but keep it clean, and cover it with a dressing if the air is making it hurt. Frequently silvadene cream is used on them, however you need a script for that.
I have been originally given 3000 units of Keflex for the 2nd degree burn on the entire top of my right foot & 3 toes..The medicine helped but makes my mind confused. I cant wear a shoe yet, it's been 2 weeks..I now am taking 1500 units of Keflex at night, plus the slyvadine cream, a strong medicine for the severe pain and wrap it to go out. My BP is usually 120/70..It's been 168, 158, & 140.
I have a new respect for my feet & burns in general. I use the antibiotic sylvadine cream, pain killer. & pray..Never experienced this before.
Maybe in another 2 weeks I will be healed. It has been hell. Good luck..Keep in touch. In 15 days I've been back to the DR 6 times..Just a drag.
I recently burned my hand and thought I was taking care of it properly but it got infected. Please for any future readers I strongly advise you to go to the ER and get Silvadene cream and a RX For Keflex.
