Wound dressings for burns
For minor burns, look for wound dressings for burns to help protect and heal. There are antiseptic ointments & topical antibiotics to ease the pain and help prevent infection. Wound dressings for burns include gauze, bandages, non-stick dressings and gentle paper tape to cover the burn or sterilize. Brands Nexcare, Johnson & Johnson and Kendall offer burn care products to help you recover.
If you have a more serious burn and have been under a doctor's care, make sure to get the burn wound dressing he or she has recommended. Patient care wound dressing for burns includes different types. For first-degree burns, alignate dressings can often suffice. Hydrofiber dressings are absorbent and can be used in some cases for second-degree burns. Find your doctor-recommended burn dressing from brands Medline, DuoDERM or AQUACEL.
