    Regardless of how it is supposed to work, I have experience that backs up my statements. Who you gonna believe, the book or your lying eyes?

    neither. scientific evidence. there is a reason burn wards treat burns the way they do. that way is keeping burns dry as much as possible, without putting crap on them. in fact, if you put that crap on them before you go to the burn ward, they are just going to scrub it out of you. no thanks.

    boiling water ain't that hot, btw, and scalds very often do not cause blisters. the fact that no blisters were observed doesn't mean squat. less than squat. anti-squat, even.

    DMSO is not recognized by the US drug authorities because there is no money to be made from it as it is in the public domain. Veterinarians make use of it because it works, human doctors don't use it because the drug companies can't patent it. It is another example of the monolithic bureaucracies doing what they do because they always have done it that way.
    Dr. Linus Pauling did some work on this until his funding was eliminated. There are many things that doctors do not understand so they deny it exists.

    lol. that's all i needed. because keeping burns dry is SOOOOO profitable compared to slathering them with something worthless. good luck with Pauling's late career crazy ********. as somebody who has had dogs that have gotten burned, no, vets don't make use of it: they bandage burns to keep them dry.

    You can enjoy the pain and scarring when you get burned, I will continue to use the method that has spared me the discomfort and blistering. I know this works because I have personal experience.

    Personal experience is meaningless for things like determining whether a medication works. The studies are conclusive. The stuff is known to cause brain degeneration in mammals, though.



    I'm done, use what you want, just don't cost me money down the road.

    when i get burned i just leave it. as long as he skin isnt broken then no need for anything. some cool water right after the burn and thats it. that is if i'm not too busy with work.

    I blame my brain degenration on all the beer that drink in order to make the burns stop hurting.

    Guys no need to fight about personal opinions or views... that's what the forum that shall not be named is for. =P

    All that really does is add a cooling sensation.

    Silvadine sulfate however is a cream often used on severe burns ( and subsequently skin graft donor sites ) which helps deter infection and speeds the development of new tissue growth and helps reduce scarring.

    We have a huge jug of this stuff at work. Don't ask me how I got a giant tub of doctor prescribed only cream without a prescription either.





    OK I stole it. While getting treated 3 years ago for a severe burn during a mad house shift on saute (that I stuck it out for 3 hours till the end of the night before going to the emergency room) when they left the room for a second I nabbed the jug cause I knew we would need that ****. I even have a little jar at home as well. Has come in very handy many times since then.
