Title: What is the best dressing for second-degree burns?

Abstract: Available evidence does not indicate a single best dressing for healing of partial thickness (second-degree) burns. Products that have shown faster wound healing compared with conventional dressings include hydrocolloids, hydrogels, polyurethane dressings, silicon-coated dressings, biosynthetic dressings, antimicrobial dressings, aloe vera, and honey. (SOR: B, based on systematic reviews of RCTs with inconsistent results.) Products that promote moist wound healing are recommended. (SOR: C, based on expert opinion.)
