Silver heals burns

Used these when my daughter got badly burned on her calf from stumbling against a galvanized steel firepit. No, she wasn't drunk, she got tripped up by a dog. She healed up very quick and no infection or scarring (which we were worried about). Definitely have these on hand.

Silver is a viable treatment option for infections encountered in burns, open wounds, and chronic ulcers. The gold standard in topical burn treatment is silver sulfadiazine, antibacterial agent for burn wound treatment.
