Green Burn® Cream

Silver Sulfadiazine USP 1% w/w


Silver sulfadiazine has broad antimicrobial activity. It is bactericidal for many Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria as well as being effective against yeast. After application of silver sulfadiazine cream onto the burn wound surface the compound acts a resservoir of silver ions. Silver ion exerts a bactericidal effect on bateria. Silver penetrates into cell of bacteria and binds to DNA, thereby inhibiting replication.


Prophylaxis and treatment of infection in burn wounds, leg ulcers and pressure sores due to micro-organisms sensitive to this anti-infective

Dosage and administration

Apply a layer approx. 3-5mm thick to the affected area using a sterile glove or spatula. Then cover area with an absorbent gauze dressing and support bandage where necessary. Dressing should be changed and Green Burn cream applied at least every 24 hours in burn treatment or at least three times weekly.


Silver sulfadiazine cream is contraindicated in patients known to be hypersensitivity to silver sulphonamide or to other components of the preparation such as cetyl alcohol or propylene glycol.

It should not be used if hepatic and renal functions become impaired or if the condition of porphyria is suspected.

In prolonged treatment of burn wounds involving extensive areas of the body the serum Sulphonamide concentrations may approach the levels equal to those in systemic treatment.
