About SILVER SULPHADIAZINE CREAM

SILVER SULPHADIAZINE CREAM is an antibiotic medication primarily used to treat bacterial infections and wound infections caused by serious burns. SILVER SULPHADIAZINE CREAM is also used to treat infected leg ulcers and pressure sores. A burn is damage to the skin or deeper tissues caused by hot liquids, fire, electricity, and chemicals. The degree of severity of burns is based on the size and depth of the burn.

SILVER SULPHADIAZINE CREAM contains Silver Sulfadiazine, which belongs to the class of 'sulfa antibiotics.' It is bactericidal (kills bacteria) and is also effective against yeast. It inhibits the production of folic acid, a nutrient required for bacterial multiplication and acts on the bacterial cell wall and cell membrane. This helps decrease the risk of the bacteria spreading to the surrounding skin or the blood that causes a severe blood infection (sepsis). 

SILVER SULPHADIAZINE CREAM is for external use only. SILVER SULPHADIAZINE CREAM has common side effects that include burning, irritation, itching, and redness at the application site. These side effects gradually resolve during the treatment and do not require medical attention.

Please cover the burn wounds with SILVER SULPHADIAZINE CREAM all the time and cover the treated area with dressings or bandages if advised by your doctor. Let your doctor know if you have glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (a genetic enzyme) deficiency, low white blood cell count, liver and kidney problems before using SILVER SULPHADIAZINE CREAM . Please consult your doctor if you are pregnant or planning to conceive before using SILVER SULPHADIAZINE CREAM since it may affect the unborn baby.
