Background: Severe burns but refuses debridement so an affordable alternative treatment with good results is needed. We report the delivery of a new therapy using MEBO ointment (Radix Scutellariae, Phellodendri Cortex, Rhizoma Coptidis) in pediatric patients with grade 2 A-B burns. Case Report: Five-year-old girl weighing 16 kg with a diagnosis of Combustio grade 2A-B with a wound area of ± 8% to 10% due to exposure to hot water 3 days before entering the hospital. It was planned for debridement but refused and was treated using a wound care process, namely washing thoroughly with NaCl 0.9%, after that pouring savlon, then pouring NaCl 0.9% again and next using MEBO ointment, followed by giving sulfratule, wet gauze, dry gauze, then covered with rolled gauze. Conclusion: MEBO ointment is quite effective in treating burns in children grade 2A-B with a wound area of ± 8% to 10% due to exposure to hot water without any reported side effects and in a relatively short wound healing time.
