Used to prevent and treat wound sepsis on patients with second and third degree burns. Common brands include: Silvadine®, Thermazene® , Ascend®, and SSD®.  Sufficient data has shown that silver sulfadiazine cream can resist bacteria were other antimicrobial agents could not. It has also been shown to be highly effective on humans and animals: like horses, dogs.

 

How to Apply Silver Sulfadiazine

The burn areas should be covered with Silvadene cream 1% at all times. The cream should be applied once to twice a daily to a thickness of approximately 1/16 inch. Whenever necessary, the cream should be reapplied to any area from which to was removed. Cover dressing is not necessary, but may be used to pad the burn site and absorb any extra exudate. Reapply immediately after hydrotherapy. Treatment of Silverdene cream 1% should be used until satisfactory healing of the site has occurred, or until the burn site is ready for skin grafting.

Treatment usually continues until the wound is completely healed or until the site is ready for skin grafting. Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same time(s) each day.Tell your doctor if your condition persists or if it worsens. Your health care professional will clean and remove the dead tissue from the wound to help the healing process.
