About BURNHEAL CREAM 15GM

BURNHEAL CREAM 15GM belongs to a combination of medicines called 'topical antibiotics' primarily used to treat burns and prevent skin infection. Burns are common household injuries that damage the skin or deeper tissues and cause the death of affected skin cells. Based on the severity of skin damage, burns are categorized into 3 main types: first-degree, second-degree and third-degree burns. 

BURNHEAL CREAM 15GM is a combination of two drugs:  Silver sulfadiazine (antibiotic) and Chlorhexidine (antiseptic). Silver sulfadiazine belongs to the class of sulfa antibiotics that inhibit the production of folic acid (a vitamin) necessary for bacteria to multiply and increase in numbers. Thereby, destroys bacteria. Chlorhexidine belongs to the antiseptics class that works by binding to the skin strongly and kills micro-organisms on the skin and prevents infection.

BURNHEAL CREAM 15GM is for external use only. Apply a small amount of BURNHEAL CREAM 15GM to the clean and dry affected area prescribed by your doctor. Avoid contact of BURNHEAL CREAM 15GM with nose, ears, mouth or eyes. In case BURNHEAL CREAM 15GM comes in contact with these areas accidentally, rinse with water thoroughly. Your doctor will advise you how often you take BURNHEAL CREAM 15GM based on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience irritation, itching or burning sensation at the site of application. Most of these side effects of BURNHEAL CREAM 15GM do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

If you are allergic to BURNHEAL CREAM 15GM or any other medicines, please tell your doctor. Do not swallow BURNHEAL CREAM 15GM. In case of accidental swallowing, contact a nearby poison control centre or consult a doctor immediately. If you are pregnant or a nursing mother, please inform your doctor before taking BURNHEAL CREAM 15GM. Wear sterile disposable gloves if you apply BURNHEAL CREAM 15GM for others and keep the treated area clean to prevent further infection. You are advised to cover the burn wounds with BURNHEAL CREAM 15GM all the time and cover the treated area with dressings or bandages if advised by your doctor. Do not apply BURNHEAL CREAM 15GM in large amounts or use for a long time than prescribed as it does not give quick or better results but increases the risk of side effects. Avoid contact of BURNHEAL CREAM 15GM with clothes or fabric as it may cause staining.  If you have glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (a genetic enzyme) deficiency, kidney or liver problems, inform your doctor before taking BURNHEAL CREAM 15GM.
