Electric burns are known to be difficult in healing as well as wound management. Infection in such chronic wounds can be detrimental and hence needs to be controlled for faster improvement. These chronic wounds also lack various chemokines and growth factors and needs to be supplemented. This article highlights the role of topical cholecalciferol in the management of electric burns.
