Treatment For Superficial Second Degree Burns of
BRT with MEBT/MEBO
According to the pathogenic process of superficial
second-degree burns, the treatment can be carried out in two stages.
Treatment in the early stage – the
emergency treatment postburn to the end of shock period (within
3–4 days after injury).
The clinical signs in this stage include pain,
blisters, and a great amount of blood plasma exudated from the site
where blister skin exfoliates.
According to the principle of BRT with MEBT/MEBO,
MEBO directly all over the wound, puncture the blister (if present) on
the lower part to discharge liquid.
Do not remove the blister skin, directly apply
MEBO on the blister skin 3–4 times daily.
With the application of MEBO, a layer of thin soft
membrane forms upon the wound free of blister skin, the
allows the exudates to ooze through, and then it gradually
not remove the soft membrane, since it can substitute the
skin role of fulfilling breathing and protection.
Continue MEBO application directed by BRT.
It is the wound-repairing period when the shock
ends and the residual viable epidermis tissue begins to regenerate and
recover, usually lasting 3–4 days.
In this period, the basal cells in the epidermis
recover to form a granular layer and thus promote wound
In clinical treatment of BRT with MEBT/MEBO, after
edema period, the blister skin loosens and exfoliates, and the thin
soft membrane formed on the wounds also loosens and
Simply cleaning away the blister skin and soft
is first desired, then continue the application of MEBO to protect the
regenerated wounds till healing.
During the whole treatment, neither pain nor
injury to wounds is allowed.
correct application method helps the
wounds heal without causing any infection, pain, scar formation or
Generally, superficial second-degree wounds
BRT with MEBT/MEBO heal within 6–8 days and the skin recovers
completely to its normal physiological status within 3 months.
Apply MEBO directly on wounds in 4 hours
The thickness of medicine should not be thicker
than 1mm and redress the wounds eveiy 4-6 hours.
Clean residues on wounds and exudates with
disinfectant gauze before redressing each time.
wounds will heal in 6-7 days.
For wounds with blisters, release water in
blisters at low position and do not remove the blister skin.
Remove the blister skin 3-4 days postburn and
continue applying MEBO.
Seven days later, wounds wound heal.
1. Apply MEBO with thickness
less than 1 mm.
Release water in blisters at low position and do not remove the blister
2. Three to four days later, remove the blister skin and apply MEBO
Smear MEBO along the direction of fine hair gently to relieve
3. Four to six hours after applying MEBO, a layer of white liquefied
exudates was formed. It is a normal phenomenon of excreting necrotic
4. Clean the liquefied products with no injury. Redress MEBO without
pains, bleeding or damage to live tissues on wounds.
5. Alternatively, use disinfected gauze to absorb liquefied products
for 30 seconds or 1 minute.
6. Disclose gauze tangential direction
7. Clean the liquefied products completely.
8. Smear MEBO evenly on wounds. The thickness is less than 1 mm.
9. Seven days later, wounds would heal. Apply MEBO
as a protective ointment for 7-10 days so as to restore normal skin
