... grey/brown skin discoloration is getting worse. I've switched to Bacitracin, that's what the Dr prescribed for his other burns. Is this ever gonna go away? I've seen some people say they have the same discoloration 10 years later?
Go back to the Silvadene if that's what the dr ordered. Its very good stuff and will cause that yucky stuff to slough off. It also stops any infection. Bacitracin is ok for minor burns but anything more needs silvadene.
Has he talked to the doc about it? They may need to debride some of the dead tissues away. Silvadene CAN discolor the new skin grey-it is due to the silver deposited into the skin as it formed and for many, it doesnt go away. It almost akin to a tattoo.
