Abstract

Objective: Burn wound healing is one of the problems of medical sciences and it is of great importance to find a drug or substance that can heal burn wounds with minimum complications. The present study aimed to evaluate the effect of ointment-based egg white on healing second-degree burn wounds. Materials and Methods: In the present triple-blind clinical trial, a total of 90 patients from Taleghani hospital, Ahvaz, Iran were selected and randomly divided into two groups based on the inclusion criteria. The intervention group was dressed with egg white formulation + silver sulfadiazine cream and the control group was treated with placebo + silver sulfadiazine cream. The burn wound healing process was evaluated on days 1, 7 and 15 by the Bates-Jensen wound assessment tool. Results: The mean scores of wound healing were decreased (13.75±1.83) in the intervention group when compared to the control (21.51±5.7) on day 15 (p<0.001). The mean duration of wound healing, wound depth, edges, undermining, necrotic tissue, amount of necrosis, exudate type and amount, surrounding skin color, wound induration, peripheral edema, granulation, and epithelialization were significantly decrease in intervention group in comparison with control (p<0.001). Conclusion: The findings of this research showed that egg whites formulation is an appropriate treatment for burn wound healing, reduced above-noted burn wounds� variables. It seems that this treatment, along with the common medicine, improves chronic wound recovery rate and patients� health status.
