Silzin (Silver Sulphadiazine 1% cream) is a local chemotherapeutic agent, used topically for the prevention & treatment of infection of wounds from burns. It has a broad antibacterial spectrum including virtually all microbial species likely to infect burn wounds. It is also an effective agent against Candida albicans and other fungi. It has a bactericidal action in contrast to Sulphadiazine.
