It is also expensive due to prolonged hospital stay and needs lot of medicine, dressing material, use of different expertise etc. So burn is a burden to our society
and government. If the major burn patient is recovered earlier, it can reduced the rate of mortality, morbidity and cost that can only achieved by leaving the
traditional wound management. So, early excision of burn wound with guidance of methylene blue can achieved early recovery, reduced mortality, morbidity and cost
