Burn on forehead/scalp
The parlour lady accidently dropped hot boiling water on my forehead and part of my scalp. The burnt area is quite large. The forehead too has swelled up. The first day wasn't so bad. It was under control. Been applying Silverex Ionic. Light pus was coming out. I would dab it and remove. This morning a bit of my skin has pealed off. Must have happened in my sleep. Also I've developed a sore throat, tonsils have flared up and slight fever and body ache. I want to know what further precautions I should take. And also if I can wash my hair. Would the pus increase if I wash?

Hi there...I can understand your concern. But you need to consult a dermatologist or general surgeon immediately. The pus will have to be sent for culture and sensitivity to start correct antibiotics. Also silver nitrate cream alone won't help you. Depending on the extent of the wound, you can started on higher topical antibiotics and epithelial creams, which will help in healing of the wound. So kindly consult a doctor as soon as possible.
