What is the best way of cleaning a burn?
I was using a hot glue gun, and it was at an extremely hot temperature, smoking as it came out. I somehow touched my finger on the glue and it burned through the skin, it didn't stick it just burned. It didn't bleed but just hurt. It's taken quite a lot of skin off, deep. I put a plaster on it straight away and sprayed some burn ease on the plaster which helped. I had dinner then carried on and STUPIDLY did it again but not as bad on my hand, that didn't break skin put just blistered like mad. My finger is now swollen under the plaster and I'm wondering how to clean it. A bath or something would hurt like hell as it's open, but I'd of thought it'd need cleaning so it doesn't infect. It looks like a very thin layer of skin is formed over as it wrinkles if you push it together.

I know it's a bit of a stupid post, but I don't want an infected finger! Thanks!

TOOTHPASTE it seriously works its the first thing you should do after a burn xox

for that blister, you better leave it alone, but if you cant stand it use a sterile needle to pop it.
now for your finger,try baby oil.

Use sterile normal saline to clean it, and get the plaster off of it. You can apply saline gauze or vaseline gauze to keep it from drying, and if you are smart, you'll get medical attention.

Hi,its best to use a bandage as a plaster might draw it.I
would bathe it in salt water yes it will sting but it will help it to heal quick.Also they say keeps burns dry
Good Luck

Run under COLD water for at least 10 minutes. Do not put ointments on. Do not bandage or cover up. if serious or in doubt dial 999 or 112 and seek help on what to do.

The best way to clean is to boil a kettle, let the water cool and bathe. At this stage you may use an anti-infectant but may arritate.

Q's & A's is not the right place to get answers needed form professional subjected areas. Especially Medically Related Q's & A's

Rinse it with a gentle soap, then put polysporin on it and don't worry about it.

use an antiseptic to wipe it of then use it with a cloth to wipe it over OR use an antiseptic wound wash and spray it on your blister so that it can heal the faster way it can heal is to eat a balanced diet

Best first aid is running it under cold water. At that point, you could use any comercial burn ointment, but don't use oils or butter. A disinfectant would definitly help against...well infection, but it may also irritate the burn.

The best thing for burns is NOTHING. No salve, no spray, no neosporin - nothing. It needs air. Take a washcloth and lather it up with cool water and soap (zest or dial - nothing perfumed) and sqeeze the soapy water over the burn and then rinse it well in the cool water. Let it dry and try not to cover it whenever possible. Once it closes and starts to scab over, you can use anti-biotic ointment to help prevent a scar.

In the future, anytime you burn yourself - immediatly run ice cold water over it as long as you can. You may not realize it, but you're skin continues to burn and you need to cool it asap to stop it.
