Tea spilled on my thighs last night and I can see swelling filled with water now. I have already applied silverex ointment yesterday night. What should I apply for rapid healing?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
ScaldRegarding follow up:
After complete healing, we can think about removal of scar.
There are special ointments for that too.

Thank you doctor,
Yes, I applied cold water/ice yesterday after the injury. But today morning, I cleaned the wound little bit with water using cotton.
1) How do I clean the wound as there is a layer formed over the wound due to the ointment (Silverex)?
2) Also as the burn is in my thigh and I need to go to office tomorrow, can I wear a jeans? How long will this take to heal?
3) Can you please suggest some ointment for scar removal as well?
I have attached a picture of the injured area.

Thanks a lot doctor,
I followed all the steps as you have mentioned, just that I did not use the Bactigras, as I thought it would stick to the wound and it may get difficult for me to remove it. The wound got rubbed off by the clothes all day in office. Is there any other brand of Bactigras or something because I am not getting that easily.
The Sofra Tulle gauze (Bactigras) is a wet gauze. It is the only dressing which can be removed painlessly. It is easy to use. This Sofra Tulle gauze will not stick and it will not be painful when you try to remove. It is very easy to apply and remove. It is like a patch.
You can ask the pharmacist by the name "Sofra Tulle Gauze". Sofra Tulle gauze comes in many brands:
2. Drez gauze.
4. Paraffin gauze.
It will take just 3 to 4 days for the wound to become dry. Please wear loose fitting clothes as I had told before.
