Are you putting the silvadene only directly on the burned areas? Do you debride at dressing changes? I had a pretty bad burn last year and was doing this process. I do remember redness around the actual burn, and I know that the nurses told us to be careful not to get the silvadene on healthy skin. The burn, the debriding, the dressing all added up to some pretty angry skin for a while in the whole general area.
I'd give your provider a call and have them check it out. It's good to have them check on your wound care anyway - better care=less scarring. Stick with the silvadene if you are able - it is kind of a miracle healer on burns, or at least that's what they told me.
Hope you continue to heal without more pain!!
