  • Burn cream

    Drugstore used to carry a white silver cream.
    No longer does.
    Was maybe 10 bucks or so for a little tube.

    Got a decent burn a week ago. Started to blister before i got some stuff on it ( non silver cream).
    Sent the ol lady to other drugstore and they had an antibacterial silver gel ( clear ). Got that on 3 hrs after.

    Today most of brown skin started to crust off. No blister, a bit of touchy pink new hide but not bad.

    Aloe and other stuff sucks.

    Get the silver gel.

    Coworkers wife a dr and he had a little tub of it at work.....$60.

    Not sure if the CVS clear gel comparable. It worked OK afaic.

    It does make the wound darker, and it takes longer to come off. But the lack of blister and seepage makes it a winner.

    Might be. I got the CVS stuff. Prior to that some other that was white. Like the cream my bud got from his wife the dr.
    His was 60 bucks for a small tub.

    This is what I got the last time

      It stopped blistering and darkened the wound like the dr supplied stuff my bud had.
      Think his darkened the wound more, and faster. And the dark skin stayed on longer.

      It was a white cream, and from the hospital.
      Just told me it was silver cream, proly higher strength?

      It worked great. Then he went to diff dept so I got a burn and found some at Walgreens, small tube, 12 bucks maybe and it was white.
      Silver of some sort in it.

      Worked as before.

      Now I can't find anything like it and sent the kids to CVS to find something w silver, they snagged the last 2 tubes, way back on bottom shelf.

      It seemed to work well. Most of my burn has flaked off now, leaving pink new skin w some touchy spots. Should be fine tomorrow.
      Been 1 week.

      But I'd still go another week before subjecting the arm to possibly skin trauma.

      There's a new tube of silver gel in my trucks glovebox for work, and one in the medicine cab at home.
      Gotta get some benadryl for the truck too (bee sting allergy).

      The ol lady came out to check on me while I was web surfing outside (can't listen to local liberal news hacks on TV).
      She rolled my arm over and was stunned, said she couldn't believe how good it looks, how fast its healing.
      Said we need to get more just in case.

      I agree.

        Yep, those look like the same ingredients and ppm of silver. It's slightly cheaper on Amazon but not by much. I'm ordering some to try.

        Did you notice the directions to keep it room temperature? Riding in your truck's glovebox wouldn't be the best place to store it.

          Sorry for reviving the thread. I am just thankful to share with you my friend's website because their website enlightened me with some tips on what to do when you have got a decent burn. You may put a thin layer of ointment, such as petroleum jelly or aloe vera, on the burn. The ointment does not need to have antibiotics in it. Some antibiotic ointments can cause an allergic reaction. Do not use cream, lotion, oil, cortisone, butter, or egg white. Immediately immerse the burn in cool tap water or apply cold, wet compresses. Do this for about 10 minutes or until the pain subsides. Apply petroleum jelly two to three times daily. Do not apply ointments, toothpaste or butter to the burn, as these may cause an infection. Stay Safe!
