I need advice on how to treat a burn wound?
Okay, so I got a really bad sunburn 8 days ago. One of my legs has a huge wound on it. It's not the type of burn you would think of from a sunburn. It looks like an actual burn wound. There's an area on my shin bigger than my hand, kind of a darker color and dried out like it's going to scab up. I tried putting lotion on it but that burned really badly. So now I'm just not sure how to treat it.

1. What should I put on it?
2. Should I cover it with a bandage or not?
3. How do I keep it clean and prevent infection?

I can't afford to go to the doctor. If I could, I would.

Sunburn IS a real burn..its a fecking RADIATION burn mate.UV light is serious sh!t.

The Rev is right...you need to go to the emergency room or your own doctor!!


Actually, it sounds like you need to see a doctor. You may actually have a second-degree burn, which is pretty serious.

EDIT: Be careful! It may turn into cancer. Many years ago, my grandma got a second-degree sunburn on her leg, and if I remember correctly, I think it became cancerous.

Aloe vera.

If you (or your neighbors ;-) have a plant, cut a 'spear' off, open it up and apply directly to the burn. Repeat often.

P.S. I really liked the person's idea to drink lots of water. Sounds like a great idea and I never would have thought of that!

Please see a doctor about this -- it sounds serious...

hmm that is bad

My best advice is to use apple cider vinegar diluted half strength in water.Apply to all burned areas. This stings at first but then will sooth and cool the skin it is also antibacterial and moisturizing. You can also try hydrogen peroxide to cleanse the wound. there is a wonderful cream called aquaphore it will help too but you must get this from a local pharmacist and you have to ask since most places keep it behind the counter.

For the wound that seems to be healed and dry use Aloe vera gel or live plant gel from inside the plant.

The vinegar has always been my first choice but fair warning it stings like H3LL.

Only cover with a bandage if it is rubbing on your clothes, otherwise just let the air heal it.

Keep hydrated and eat lots of healthy foods including lots of vitamin C tablets or OJ this is going to really help you.

I wish you the Best and I will say some prayers for you too.

You should see a doctor but I understand not affording it.

if you live near a major US city you might find a FREE medical clinic many cities have them google free medical clinic and of course your city

See a doctor, Linz. Find the state health department clinic and go there. They will see you. If it gets worse go to the emergency room.

And any lotion other than aloe vera has alcohol and all kinds of other sh!t in it, and is not recommended for burns. All natural cocoa butter is recommended to moisturize.

A 3rd degree burn is where you have open sores or cracks, eruptions in the skin where there is fluid leaking out. If you have anything worse than blisters, you must keep all bacteria out of the wounds or risk infection. And see a doctor!

Soak your leg in cool water.
DO NOT USE SOAP TO CLEAN IT. Hydrogen peroxide will kill bacteria.
Drink lots of plain water (not bottled water - too many chemicals from that plastic, you know)
Stay off of it and out of the sun.
Take an anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen (Motrin) to reduce pain and swelling.

I am not a doctor; I'm just giving you some motherly advice. lol Take care of that, and yourself!

"I can't afford to go to the doctor. If I could, I would."
Don't you people even have free emergency hospital?
I'd move to Canada, Europe, Australia-NZ or some other civilised place ASAP.

In the mean time, all you can do it keep it bare, cool, clean and wait for the body to do its magic.
