Home Use MEBO Quick Guide

For family use, when flame burn, hot oil hot water scald or skin abrasion occurs, MEBO should be smeared onto the wound immediately, and then pain alleviation, damage decreasing and infection prevention will be achieved. 

The earlier the medicine application, the better is the effect.

Because after burn or scald, the remaint heat accumulated on the wound will cause progressive damage to the skin. MEBO applied can remove the remnant heat in time and prevent the progressive damage. 

Treatment condition: a clean or sterile (which is not absolutely necessary) environment is required. Temperature around the wound surface should be kept at 34–38°C.

Strictly sterilized conditions are not emphasized. De-bridement using any disinfectant, saline or water is forbidden. Small burns can be dealt with at home with MEBO. Moderate and minor burns encountered in the battlefield can also be treated with BRT with MEBT/ MEBO. 

Early wound care: any feculency and dirt should be cleared away. Do not use any method or topical drug that may cause further injury to the wound or promote tissue hydrolysis.

General Application of BRT with MEBT/MEBO

        Directly smear MEBO onto the wounds with a thickness of 1 mm. 

At the beginning, no debridement is required except for chemical burns or dirty wounds. Renew MEBO every 3–4 h, before which wiping off the residual ointment and liquefaction products with gauze or tissue paper (gentle and careful renewal is demanded to avoid pains and bleeding). 

1. For wounds with blisters, be sure to preserve the blister skin, directly apply MEBO until the blister skin is removed 5 days later. 

2. For deep second-degree burns, after applying MEBO, dermal tissue in the necrotic layer begins to liquefy on day 7 postburn. Renew MEBO and wipe off the liquefaction product timely. After the complete discharge of necrotic tissue, apply less MEBO and renew every 4–6 h till the wounds heal. 

3. For third-degree burns, treatment with a special debridement technique can be applied coordinately.

Special Application of BRT with MEBT/MEBO

For treating not easily exposed small burns wounds, apply MEBO with a thickness of 2–3 mm, then apply a decompression bandage using dry gauze. Before changing the dressing every 12 h, gently remove the drug sediment and liquefied necrotic tissue. For treating traumatic, ul-cerative and operative wounds, 1–2 layers of gauze impregnated with MEBO also could be used.

Small Burns Wounds

In the treatment of small burns wounds occurring in inconveniently exposed body parts, bandaging is recommended. However, dressing changes and renewal of MEBO ointment at a thickness of 2–3 mm every 12 h is recommended. Contrary to the typical dressing change protocol, however, rather than debride the wound beneath the bandage, we recommend that the bandage be gently removed leaving the residual ointment and metabolic products to continue their cleansing activity.

For first aid at home (especially in the kitchen)

Immediately apply MEBO on the wound to relieve pain, stop bleeding, alleviate injuries and prevent infection in cases of scalds and burns by hot oil, boiling water, or friction burns. The sooner, the better. 

Treatment For First Degree Burns

The clinical signs of first-degree burns include skin redness, slight swelling and pain. 

Treatment Procedure: Immediate application of MEBO may relieve the pain. The erythema gradually diminishes as MEBO is wanned in situ and absorbed through the skin. At 12h postburn, the skin may return to normal. For burns with edema, the epidermis is partially destroyed, the pains may be relieved more slowly and the wounds would heal in 2~4 days when the superficial stratum comeum exfoliates.
