    MEBO can be applied to the deeper infection of burn wound caused by the failure of other therapy or long-term unrestorable residual wound. Other topical drugs and crust formed by necrosis should be eliminated as far as possible before treatment. If there is no obvious sign of infection such as redness, swelling, fever and pain on the wound basement, MEBO can be applied on the wound surface in thickness of 2 mm. The ointment will liquefy and necrosis and other residual topical drugs will melt and float up in 3 to 4 hours. Then perform another debridement to remove the covering and crust from the wound. Change dressing 3 to 4 times per day and the wound will be cleaned basically in 3 days. After that, change dressing 2 to 3 times per day according to the condition. Clear the wound before redressing each time without further damage to the wound while keeping the principle of no pain, no bleeding and no damage to the normal tissue. For patient who cant be treated by exposed therapy. The wound can be applied with MEBO in thickness of 2 to 3 mm, and dressed loosely with gauze. Change dressing 1 to 2 times a day until recovery.
    Wound with edema combined with aging granulation tissue should be treated with standardized application of drug and skin of the wound edge be protected from backroll, unaffecting wound healing. Overgrowing granulation tissue beyong wound edge can be removed by erasion or cutting surgically, followed by application of MEBO. Wound without trend of healing over 45 days can be treated by transplantation to close the wound, or by continuous application of MEBO until wound healing. Taken wound after transplantation can be applied with MEBT/MEBO continuously for protection and prevention of scar hyperplasy.
