Prevention with high dosage of Vitamin C (Ascorbic acid infusion). Seems ineffective. Only one small study conducted, in 37 adults with burns. More research is needed. Mild side effects may include stomach pain.

Additional Information

L-Lyxoascorbic Acid

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid and L-ascorbic acid, is a vitamin found in food and used as a dietary supplement. As a supplement it is used to treat and prevent scurvy. Evidence does not support use in the general population for the prevention of the common cold. It may be taken by mouth or by injection. It is generally well tolerated. Vitamin C was discovered in 1912, isolated in 1928, and first made in 1933. (source)
