hold an ice cube until it stops hurting


faithhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
but their fingers under cold water...
thats what i usually do.
it will eventually stop hurting.

Ryan,
Mix some baking soda with cold water - just enough to make a paste. Put the paste on the skin that hurts. It will take the sting out. My mom used to do this when we were little. It really works.


versantly
cool water, keep the wound clean (no ointments or salves), treat with Advil for pain.

wash the wound and apply some ice and use some Silver Sulfadiazine cream. I burned my neck using a curling iron it started to turn purple and my bf dad whose a Dr gave me some, worked real well in about week.

Burns are tricky... cold water and medicated creams feel good but close and clog the pores and don't allow the burned area any breathing room in the skin. Same story with aloe. If it'd bad, tell them to see a doctor, otherwise tell them to let the burns breathe, keep them clean and watch for signs of infection ( pus, improper scabbing ).

run their fingers under cool water for about 10 mins.

afterwards, apply nothing but aloe vera gel (they can put this in the fridge to make it cold-the coldness will help stop the sting).

if the fingers are blistering (forming blisters) then an emergency room trip is required. these are 2nd degree burns and require a special cream called Silvadene that only the hosptial or dr's office can get.

otherwise, just use the aloe vera gel and try to keep the fingers as dry and clean as possible. if their not allergic (and over age 12), they can take Ibuprofen to help w/pain and swelling. take 200-400mg every 6 hours as needed but no more than 1200 mg in 24 hours.

do NOT use the following

-ICE. it can actually burn you more-making the pain worse
-FOOD PRODUCTS (yogurt,butter,etc) these trap heat, making the burn worse and increase the risk for getting an infection
-LOTIONS,CREAMS,OR OILS. also trap heat and increase infection risk

if the burn area:

-becomes more red,painful, or swollen
-it begins to drain liquid (pus)

go straight to the emergency room-this indicates infection.

hope they feel better soon!!

I highly doubt this is an emergency... I pour hot glue on my hands just to freak people out. Yeah, it burns, but just put it in some water or ice, put some burn creme on it if it's too bad but really, a hot glue burn is not that bad..

Aloe Vera. If you have a plant, cut a leaf and slick the gooey stuff on the burn. It takes care of it right away. If you don't have a plant, use the Aloe Vera you can get at the market -- it isn't as good as a fresh plant, but it does work.

Also the Bio-Oil I've been talking about is almost like a magic elixir.
