... leaving the wound?
It may be but I would call the doctor if it continues much longer than a day or so no longer than two. Does it have a foul odor to it? If it does please call the doctor in charge of the infection it could be worse than when it was originally diagnosed. Good luck and hope it heals soon. marjorie zych
The best way to care for a burn is to scrub it clean with betadine solution and soft brush. Then apply a liberal amount of the silvadene cream, cover with sterile gauze. Do this at least 3 times per day. If the "seeping" does not subside, seek medical attention asap. Good luck to you.
Please consult your physician. I had this occur when I was prescribed this cream for a wound. My dr. said my body was rejecting the silver and referred to this as an allergy type response. He switched me to a different treatment. 9 years later I still have an ugly gray-brown discoloration to the skin where the yellow discharge collected under the dressing each day. I used it for 7 days before I told my dr. Silly me!
