my burn is dry

I have been putting the ointment on 3 times a day since Sunday and it is slowly getting better but I am afraid that it might be drying it out. It is Thursday night and I am still putting the cream on but what should I do for the dryness?

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

A thin layer of ointment, such as petroleum jelly or aloe vera, on the burn, can help with the dryness.
