Treatment of a Facial Burn
Yoy should be seen by a Plastic surgeon or a General surgeon versed in burns. Depending on the thickness you may need surgery or preliminary treatment with Silvadene. Once healed, further surgery may be required to treat contractures and bands and compression may be needed for months. Only a thorough examination can suggest the initial best step for you.
