Why don't you put ice on a burn?
I've always wondered why you don't put ice on a burn, anybody know why?

Hm...I don't know why? Why dont try? Cone just taste better i suppose =-S

you should put ice on a burn to cool the skin. cause butter makes it keep cooking your skin.

You DO put ice on a burn!!!

It's butter that you don't put on a burn. Ages ago, that's what people put on them.

woah there, you do put ice on a burn. but not directly!! always put a cloth around it and set it on there.

By putting ice on a burn, you can literally freeze the nerves underneath and damage them permanently. Because prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures can destroy and harm any part of you ice will not help. If you get a mild 1st degree burn just run it under water for a few minutes then put a burn cream on it, slap a band-aid over it and call it a day. 2nd degree burns put a dry gauze pad on and check in with your doctor. 3rd degree call 911

That is highly recommended with 3rd degree burns.
Get to the hospital where you can get Silvedine to avoid infection. Wrap with a 4x4 gause, and vet wrap loosely.

Prolonged exposure to ice could damage the skin. If it is cold you desire, try a cold compress.
If ice is what you really want it is okay as long as you don't put it directly on the skin (wrap it in a cloth) and don't leave it on for more than 10 minutes.

Tami's got it don't put ice on exposed skin,cool compresses
or cool water .
