Dermazin cream is a topical antiseptic used to treat a range of skin infections. It contains silver sulfadiazine which helps to reduce the risk of infection by killing bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms.
Dermazin cream is most commonly used to treat burns and other skin infections. It works by killing bacteria, fungi, and viruses on the skin. It also helps to reduce inflammation and pain associated with burns. The silver sulphadiazine in the cream helps to prevent microbial growth, while the water helps to keep the skin hydrated.
How does Dermazin Cream work?
Dermazin Cream (Silver Sulfadiazine) is an antimicrobial cream used to treat and prevent infection in minor burns, cuts, and other skin wounds.
It works by forming a protective barrier on the wound to keep out bacteria and other germs, while also releasing silver ions to kill any bacteria that may be present.
The cream also helps to keep the wound moist, which helps to speed up the healing process. Silver Sulfadiazine has both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which can help to reduce swelling and redness in the affected area.
