For Burns, External: “Experienced horrific burns from Radiation treatment for Cancer, so badly that I needed a wound care Nurse ! Several medications did not help, Was given Silvadene Cream by a Nurse. What relief ! no more pain-no raw skin ! completely healed the area.”

For Burns, External: “I had a burn on a finger about 10 years ago and a doctor prescribed this. I have used this since on almost any kind of injured skin or rash. It increases the healing process in my experience and works exceptionally well. It of course is not good to use if you have sulfa allergies. This is my favorite medication and feel strongly that it should move to an over the counter status.”

For Burns, External: “T recently had a motorcycle accident and had 2 and 3rd degree burns on my arms and legs and Silvadene Cream healed me in 3 weeks. It works really well and in my opinion it should be moved to over the counter. It works well on cuts and other things of that nature as well.”

For Burns, External: “This is just great for burns. I am a firefighter, got some small 2nd degree burns. Even though I was completely covered in my protective gear, I still got the burns from an intense wave of black smoke. It takes a lot to burn through the gear. Well anyway, I ended up being sent to the hospital per chief's orders and do not regret it because they put this cream on and it instantly made the stinging pain in my ear go from about 4 out of 10 to a 1. It seems these burns are healing ultra quick and there is little pain associated. No doubt in my mind that this cream works wonders, I am thrilled they gave me a full tube and a refill, I probably won't need more than 1/4 the tube, so it will be nice to have around.”

For Burns, External: “This was prescribed by my son's pediatrician for diaper rash. Let me tell you, there is nothing that soothed or cleared it faster. Took less then 24 and his rash was gone. Also used on burns...Amazing!”

For Burns, External: “Prescribed by our doctor to treat my 3-year-old's 3rd degree burn on her forearm. This cream is wonderful! It is healing the burn well. (Our local grocery store neglected to put the protective cover around their rotissirie chicken stand, exposing the hot metal edge. Our daughter burned her forearm when she walked past the stand.) Note the warning that it is a Sulfa drug. Thank heavens I looked it up! I'm allergic to Sulfa. If I had not researched it, I would have applied it with my bare hands, causing a deadly reaction to myself!”

For Burns, External: “I suffered a burn to my fingertips at work, and the nurse smeared Silvadene on. I thought it was odd to put ointment on a burn but let him do it anyway. Within an hour, it was as if my fingers were just a bit calloused, such as from playing the guitar. I was totally free of pain and had complete function in my fingers. I wish this stuff was available OTC; it would save people a lot of needless misery from small but painful burns.”

For Burns, External: “I had a propane grilling accident and was flashed burned on the face. Nothing crazy, 1st and 2nd degree, maybe a few small areas of 3rd. But this cream is a miracle. I went from looking like a monster to looking like nothing ever happened in 5 days. THIS SHOULD BE OTC!!!”

For Burns, External: “Received bad second degree burns on both forearms from an accident working near a pizza oven. Was prescribed this miracle cream and my burns healed without a trace of any lasting scars. It's been about fifteen years, and I still can't tell exactly where I was burned!”

For Burns, External: “I had used this before about 5 years ago when I picked up a lawn mower and brunt my hand on the hidden exhaust in the front. 2 nd degree burn in the entire palm of my hand. Healed like Christ himself returned and healed it. Therefore, last week when I took the Harley out for a quick run to the store, while parking it my leg hit the pipes! (my other 2 bikes that I ride regularly don't have the same pipe structure and are impossible to lean our leg on them as there's no cross over pipe to burn yourself on) I didn't even panic, I called the doctor, asked for this cream, he prescribed 5 big tubes and in 45 min I was feeling no sting and applied it on thick. its been five days and the burns are healing well and I expect no scar as before.”

For Burns, External: “I wish this would go over the counter already. This stuff works great. Whether I get burnt from a flat iron or curling iron or even a bad sun burn this stuff works great! Had some left over after my daughter slipped on the deck and hit her shoulder against the BBQ. I tried neosporin for a couple days and nothing. Dr rx'd SSD cream her burn was gone the next day!”

For Burns, External: “Having suffered a severe friction burn I received Flamazine on prescription after 3 days. The wound was hand size and quite deep, weeping constantly and very sore. The cream was amazing, instantly soothed, made the scabs fall off (bit gross but not painful) and healing well now.”

For Burns, External: “Had first, second, and third-degree burns down the entirety of my back and after six days of applying SSD 1% the skin already began to replenish itself. It's now been 2.5 weeks and my back is essentially fully healed with slight discolouration. Miracle cream.”
