Topical treatment for facial burns
There is insufficient high quality research and evidence to enable conclusions to be drawn about the effects of topical interventions on wound healing in people with facial burns.
Burn injuries are an important health problem, occurring frequently in the head and neck area. The head and neck area are central to a person’s identity and plays a vital role in communication – other basic abilities such as hearing, smelling, and breathing may also be affected as a direct result of a facial burn. Topical interventions are currently the basis of treatment of partial-thickness burns to the face. This review aims to assess the effects of topical interventions on wound healing in people with facial burns of any depth.
