Once a partial thickness burn has been cleaned and debrided a dressing can be applied. In this example bacitracin ointment has already been applied to the skin. Next, loosely apply an occlusive dressing such as a petroleum-infused gauze (brand examples include Adaptic or Xeroform). Imagine you are creating a loose synthetic blister. Finally, apply a dry rolled gauze on top. The dressing should be changed daily.
