Clotrimazole is NOT used for the treatment of Burns. Clotrimazole is used to treat fungal infections. You may use Silver sulfadiazine topical cream for burns.
No, you can't use it for burns. Can you describe the burns and how big they are? A burn with a blister on your finger from bumping the oven is alot different then one covering your whole hand and deeper then a blister.
Yes, you may use lotrimin to treat 1st degree burns, especially on the face. Apply it several times daily. Anything deeper than a 1st degree burn (aka, with a blister), go to the doctor. I am a burn nurse, and we use lotrimin on 1st degree burns routinely.
