How Burnheal Cream works

Burnheal Cream is a combination of two antiseptic medicines: Chlorhexidine Gluconate and Silver Nitrate.

Silver Nitrate stops bacteria from producing folic acid, a nutrient required for bacterial multiplication. This kills the bacteria and treats skin infection due to burns.
