The patient is a 50 years old female. She had a burn injury on the inner side of the hand three days back. I have attached the picture. Now, the skin over the area is darkened. The thin skin over it has started peeling this morning. She has pain, burning sensation and not able to sleep. What can be done about this? It is in the inner side of hand and it keeps hurting due to constant irritation. I would like to know some medication to relieve the pain and some topical application if needed. She is having gastritis and taking Pantocid 40 mg for three days.
