Evaluation of L-Mesitran® dressings in the treatment of minor burns and scalds at a paediatric emergency departmentMinor burns and scalds are common, painful injuries among children. In this evaluation, the author sought to establish if L-Mesitran® dressings (Aspen Medical Europe Ltd) – a range of honey enriched advanced wound dressings – provided positive patient experiences and outcomes in the management of minor burns and scalds in a paediatric population. L-Mesitran Hydro and Border were found to reduce erythema and pain. Feedback from clinicians, parents, and children was positive overall.
