Burns on the shoulders
My cousin was going through a depression. Due to which she tried for suicide and she got a burn on the shoulder. After 40 days now of treatment at hospital, the wound is developing some blisters and it's turning reddish pink in colour. We are taking the dressing at our community hospital. After so many days also the wound is not curing. We fear if anything more happens. The doctor's at here say that by keeping the wound open it would get cured soon. In the beginning they were applying SYLVEREX IONIC next they started applying FUCIDIN OINTMENT then some tablet named BACTRIM d.s {they powdered it applied on wound} and now they applying NEOSPORIN H antibiotics ointment . So as they are keep changing the medicine does it cause some side effects and on pain they give painkillers in the form of injection or tablet. I want you to help me how to get cured soon as she feels very discomfort and very sad all the time. The wound now is size of Palm,how to heal it sooner and what are the suggestion
