What KM said.

What the good guys here say:

"Indications and Usage for Silver Sulfadiazine Cream
Silver Sulfadiazine Cream, USP 1% is a topical antimicrobial drug indicated as an adjunct for the prevention and treatment of wound sepsis in patients with second and third degree burns".

My opinion. A number of years ago a I got some nasty burns picking up an unregulated mains voltage transformer. I got this pile of pinprick but deep burns on my fingertips. ER was fantastic and used this silver burn cream. It was brilliant.
