What's the best thing to put on a burn spot?
I burnt my leg on the hot exhaust pipe of a motorbike on sunday..so what's the best thing to put on it..I've been using honey, but i've heard suggestions like putting butter on it or vaseline..

the best thing to put on a burn is ground up pepper and tobasco sauce. Works like a charm!

Butesin Picrate. Buy it at the drug store. Get the large size....You're gonna LOVE it! Takes the pain away.

Silvadene (it may be prescription only).

put some aloe on it, either from a plant or lotion from the drugstore

faith girl
Aloe Vera - especially if you can get it in the original plant form - otherwise make sure if it's from a bottle that it is 100% pure (keep it in the fridge it'll be cool!)

Fresh Prince
vaseline works the best, it protects it good. it also heals a bit

don't use any of that stuff. it'll make it worse. use aloe or buy a burn spray from the store.

Depends on the nature of the burn!

Since you're asking through this forum I'll assume that it's a--relatively speaking--mild burn, not resulting in breaking of the skin. Start with cold water! Run it for a while, or soak your burn spot in it. You might also try a topical pain reliever (read the directions to make sure that it's not contraindicated for a burn!) to help relieve pain, as well as take a pain reliever like ibuprofen or acetominophen.

And do a Google search for burn treatment and get a more extensive answer!

Depends on how deep the burn is?

Silvadene is the choice of drug- prescription only.

Over the counter: bactroban or neosporin.

mustard and ice

Do not put butter on it as that can cause infection. Try putting triple antibiotic on it. If it is a severe burn, see your doctor.

If it were me I would not put butter or vaseline on it. I would go to Wal-mart or my local drug store and get some kind of gel or ointment that has aloe in it and use it . I think you will find this will help you.

You put honey on a burn? What the hell???

Use aloe vera or neosporin. If you have access to an aloe plant, break off a leaf - it's rather fleshy - and then break the leaf in two. It will ooze a liquid. That liquid has very good healing properties. Slather it over your wound.

The neosporin comes in a tube. Use it like any ointment.

Aloe Vera

None of those. The ideal cream is silvadene (silver sulfadiazine). If not available, use antibiotic ointment like Neosporin and keep covered. your goal is to prevent infection until the skin heals.

First of all NEVER use butter on ANY kind of burn. How deep into your skin is this burn you have? If your injury goes into the dermal layers you should see a doctor. You would probably get antibiotics. At the same time you would probably have a topical cream to apply that the doctor could prescribe. The topical cream may end up being one that you can get over the counter but to be safe and ensure that you heal quickly and with minimal scarring I would suggest seeing a doctor. If you don't and get an infection you could end up with more extensive scarring or even losing your leg due to infection. If it is just kind of superficial, cleaning it thoroughlyand applying pure aloe vera or other highly recomended burn cream will probably do the trick. Ipersonally would let it get plenty of air. If it is covered continuisly there is too much of a chance for bacteria to grow. I would also make sure you washed it and reapplied the gelor cream twice a day. Once in the morning and once at night. NO VASELLINE either. Bacteria can thrive in that too.
