Silver sulfadiazine is a broad-spectrum, synthetic antibacterial agent with a chemical structure that includes sulphur and nitrogen atoms. It is effective against many gram-positive and gram-negative organisms. It acts on the cell membrane and cell wall. Silver Sulfadiazine is typically delivered in a 1% solution suspended in a water-soluble base.
Silver Sulfadiazine is used primarily as a topical burn cream on second and third degree burns in horses. It prevents the growth of a wide array of bacteria, as well as yeast, on damaged skin. It is also helpful on other shallow, large area wounds such as abrasions.
