It is a randomized case control study of bovine collagen cream containing silver sulphadiazine dressing in second degree partial thickness burns to evaluate its utility as a drug delivery device and wound cover to facilitate the healing without complication, its efficacy, safety, pain control, outcome, and duration of healing in comparison to plain silver sulphadiazine cream dressing. Patients of less than 35%, second degree partial thickness burns of all age groups and both sexes were included. On the first day, after thorough cleaning of the wound, two anatomical sites were selected for comparison of two different dressing. Dressing was done every morning with application of cream and assessment in terms of pain relief, secondary infection, healing time, appearance and pigmentation of area. It was done in both areas of wound on 7th, 14th and 21st post burn days with clinical photographic recording. Collagen cream impregnated with silver sulphadiazine was well tolerated .It functions as a drug delivery system, effective pain control, early epithelization and wound healing with less incidence of secondary infections , good cosmetic appearance of wound observed.
