Is my cigarette burn healing correctly?
Sorry to hear about your cigarette burn. The fact that nothing blistered up is a good sign that it was not a deep burn. As far as what product to be put on there are options. Silvadene is usually used on an open wound so whether or not that is helpful in your case I will leave up to you and your physician. The pink color is a normal part of healing. If you are concerned about it then there are actions that can be done to help the scar healing process if need be. This is best done under the care of a healthcare professional such as a facial plastic surgeon, dermatologist, or plastic surgeon.
I hope this helps and good luck.
