[Skin Concerns] Using liquid silicone sheets for new burns? | Kr Laser

I have a burn on my arm from accidentally touching a hot pan while cooking 2 days ago. Its about 2 inches long but not very wide. It’s definitely only a first degree wound, as the pan only briefly made contact with my skin and the area stopped hurting after a few hours. The burn is currently a dark brown and slightly “bubbly”/ripple-y— I think this is dead skin that should eventually flake off. The skin is fully closed with no pus and no erythema around it. Currently, I’m applying Vaseline on it every few hours and covering it off with a bandaid (the sticky part is not touching the burned skin).

I have some [leftover liquid silicone sheets](https://www.scarguard.com/products/scarguard-scar-repair-liquid) that I had been using on another scar, and I was wondering if it would be safe to use on a burn? If so, when would be the right time to begin applying the sheets? All I want is to flatten the burn and turn it more pink, rather than the dark brown it is now- it’s not in a very noticeable part of my arm so I don’t care about completely getting rid of it! Thanks in advance for your help.
