Here are a few alternatives.

An old timey solution we used was Burow's Solution. It is Aluminum Acetate resulting from the reaction of
Calcium acetate and Aluminum Sulfate. It is buffered. I imagine it is the sulfate which helps, similar to Epsom salts which is magnesium sulfate.

We'd make a solution with water and the Burow's Solution powder. Then make moist wraps of gauze and wrap the open skin area to keep it moist and to allow the sulfate topical absorption. Sulfate is critical to opening the sulfoxidation process- detox pathway. http://www.detoxpuzzle.com/sulfate.php

Other conventional treatments are Silvadene Cream, which we used for burns and other large areas of open skin. Silvadene is a sulfa derivative. So do NOT use with Sulfa drug allergies!

Calamine Lotion is another alternative for mild burns, or itching dry skin which is healing. Soaking in milk for 15 minutes. Aloe is another alternative.

Homeopathic

Arnica: This is a valuable first-aid remedy to help reduce pain and swelling and prevent the onset of shock after any injury. Another remedy that is more specific to the burn should be considered after Arnica.

Cantharis: This remedy is indicated for extreme burning pain, when the person is very intense and restless. It is often useful in reducing or preventing blister formation. Cantharis can help with any burn, but is most often indicated for severe ones (second or third degree).

Causticum: If a burn is intensely painful and blisters seem to be forming, this remedy may help to bring relief. The person often feels more sad than restless from the pain. Rawness and soreness may develop in the injured area. Causticum is also helpful when pain remains in older burns, or when burns have not completely healed.

Hepar sulphuris calcareum: This remedy is helpful for treating very sensitive and painful burns in people who are prone to infection. The person may feel extremely vulnerable and irritable, and may have chills or be very sensitive to cold.

Hypericum: This remedy is often helpful when the pain of a burn is intense and the nerves are extremely sensitive. Along with the usual discomfort of a burn, stabbing or shooting pains may be felt in the injured area.

Phosphorus: This remedy may be useful for the pain of electrical burns, on the way to medical care. (When electrical burns occur, the damaged area may look small on the surface, but be more extensive underneath; they should always be examined by a doctor.)

Urtica urens: When a burn is mild and the primary symptoms are redness and stinging pain, this remedy often brings relief. It is often useful for sunburn when the pain is prickly and stinging.

Calendula and Hypericum tinctures: These tinctures (used topically in unpotentized herbal form) often is helpful in soothing burns and promoting tissue healing. Ten drops of either Calendula or Hypericum tincture, or both, may be mixed in an ounce of water and applied to the area several times per day.

Udder Balm is another ole timey salve for burns and open skin. "Bag Balm" is another version. Again the active ingredient appears to be sulfate!

Zinc oxide is another alternative for topical relief. Or vinegar, honey, leeks, lavender essential oil. Many more alternatives here: http://www.christinas-home-remedies.com/home-remedies-for-burns.html


There is a "Miranda Castro 7-cream" which is legendary in Europe. It has coconut oil is another suggestion.

Manuka honey is an amazing healer.

Shea butter is another holistic alternative. Source: http://www.agbangakarite.com/

Topical probiotics (dairy-free). Water kefir could help, from my understanding of the microbial benefits.

Witch hazel is another alternative.

Additionally, Soaking in kelp and/or bentonite clay infused water helps.
