Burn rehabilitation experts at UT Southwestern outline best treatments for post-burn itching
Date:2/26/2009

n three weeks to heal.
  • Itching is typically worse around the edges of the burned area.

    "For years and years afterward, patients will have problems with itching. It's not something that comes up during healing and goes away. It's a chronic problem for them," Dr. Gabriel said.

    Dr. Gabriel said the study arose from his and his colleagues' struggles to help alleviate the problem for patients. Researchers reviewed the medical literature since 1950 and found only 10 trials and one case report on effective treatments that met standards for establishing burn care practice guidelines.

    "We found a dearth of well-done studies on itching," he said. "Our recommendations combined best evidence available as well as our clinical experience in our very active burn program."
