SULFAMYLON Cream is a topical agent indicated for
adjunctive therapy of patients with second and third degree burns.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Prompt institution of appropriate measures for
controlling shock and pain is of prime importance. The burn wounds are then
cleansed and debrided, and SULFAMYLON Cream is applied with a sterile gloved
hand. Satisfactory results can be achieved with application of the cream once
or twice daily, to a thickness of approximately 1/16 inch; thicker application
is not recommended. The burned areas should be covered with SULFAMYLON Cream at
all times. Therefore, whenever necessary, the cream should be reapplied to any
areas from which it has been removed (e.g., by patient activity). The routine
of administration can be accomplished in minimal time, since dressings usually
are not required, if individual patient demands make them necessary, however,
only a thin layer of dressings should be used.
When feasible, the patient should be bathed daily to aid
in debridement. A whirlpool bath is particularly helpful, but the patient may
be bathed in bed or in a shower.
The duration of therapy with SULFAMYLON Cream depends on
each patient's requirements. Treatment is usually continued until healing is
progressing well or until the burn site is ready for grafting. SULFAMYLON Cream
should not be withdrawn from the therapeutic regimen while there is the possibility
of infection. However, if allergic manifestations occur during treatment with SULFAMYLON
Cream, discontinuation of treatment should be considered.
If acidosis occurs and becomes difficult to control,
particularly in patients with pulmonary dysfunction, discontinuing therapy
SULFAMYLON Cream for 24 to 48 hours while continuing fluid therapy may aid in
restoring acid-base balance.
