    There is sometimes a creamcolored protein membrane formed on the wound of superficial II degree burns and deep II degree burns superficial type. It is because that skin structure and function is damaged after burns combined with microcirculatory stasis-reperfusion injury, leading to the exudation of water and plasma of the microcirculation to tissue space and the burns wound surface. Part of proteins in the exudation will coagulate into a layer of creamcolored protein membrane, which adheres to the wound tightly. For this membrane can help protecting the wound, it should not be removed by force during wound treatment. And the membrane will separate from the wound automatically after 1-2 weeks provided no infection occurs. Then the removal of the membrane can be performed.
