This study aimed at describing, by means of a literature review, the topical agents and bandage types which have been recommended in the treatment of burns and their implications in nursing care. This study was conducted by collected bibliographic data concerning the last 12 years from Lilacs, Medline and Dedalus databases. The articles found were organized as research and review articles and later categorized according to the theme: topical agents and temporarily skin dressing. We discussed the possible effects as well as the indications and recommendations as to the manipulation of the agents and bandage types which have been recommended in the treatment of burns.
