I had asked for assistance in finding this product once before, but I think I may have spelled it's name incorrectly. This is a cream that comes in a tube that is used for smaller-scale burns: when you touch an iron, hot pot, stove, etc. It works like a dream, but seems to be impossible to find in any pharmacy, at least in the places I asked for it. Any suggestions, please pass them along. Thanks.

In the U.S. it is listed as being the main ingredient in several brand names, such as:

Almay Anti-Itch Lotion




and Xylocaine.

So you may wish to try looking for it under those names at your local store and pharmacies.

I've known of this cream since I was a kid. My mom brought it from South America (Chile) sold under the name Butesin - Picrato De Butamben. I had her ship me some to Canada as I cant find any here.

This cream is amazing! Ive had several hot water burns as a child (dumped hot tea over myself) and just today burnt my fingers with a hot oven pan! Pain is gone in approx. 5 mins. It leaves no marks or blisters. I let my mother inlaw try it on a burn from hot oil she was frying with - burning pain was gone in no time and again no blisters or marks. This is really a miracle cream. I'm going to see if I can find it under a different name here in Canada.

I have sent an email to Abbott Australasia Pty Ltd. Their name is on the bottom of the tube that I have almost finished. I hope to get a reply soon. Perhaps if you email them also we might get some results.

About Butesin Picrate: In the 50's my mother was stoking our coal furnace when flames broke ou of the furnace and burned one side of her face. She was alone, and called her doctor who said to call the drugstore to deliver a tube and slather it on. She did so, and not only did it relieved the considerable pain, but she suffered not a single mark or scar. Years later my husband met a similar burn victim who told him the same story. I have always kept a tube in my kitchen drawer, but as thankfully never neede it has dried up. I WANT MORE! Why is this wonderful product not readily available?

About Butesin Picrate: I was introduced to this cream 47 years ago when my daughters’ leg was scalded by hot water. There were no blisters or scars, and I’ve been using that ointment ever since. I have been trying to by it here in Australia, but the product is not available. I’m pleasantly surprised to see so many people looking for this “miracle†cream/ointment. Where can I obtain some?

So did anyone ever locate PICRATO DE BUTESIN (or the same thing under a different name)?? I too am desperate to find it. My little boy just burned himself with boiling water. I remember using that product in Bolivia and it truly was a miracle salve for healing burns.
