just keep it wrapped up in a wet towel it will go off the pain soon but will be sore for a couple of days oh and also take some paracetomol too


super duper
hurts so bad eh?

put it in a cup of ice or cold water to get rid of the sting should take about 10 minutes then some sudocrem should help


gr8ful_one

The best thing is Noni juice pour some on a rag and
keep it over the burn. But if you dont have that then ice it up for 15 min twice a day and then Vaseline and bandage it up

OUCH! I hate burns, they sure can smart ya cant they? Anyways, Not allot can be done for that initial stinging, except soaking it in ice-water, or just running them under the cold water tap, it's some relief anyways. After that first bad burning goes down some, put some burn ointment on it, or Vaseline if you dont have any burn cremes. Hope this helps hun, :) Sorry you got burned, :( Take Care.


Jac
so i know this is really gross, but if they do start to blister take extra good care of them and ensure that they dont get infected!!

get the vasoline off!!

vasoline traps the heat in and will make your burn worse. if the skin isn't broken, vinegar will take away the burning pain. cold/ice water will help - don't leave your hand in ice water for more than 20 minutes at a time

take some Ibuprofen OR Acetaminophen

keep your hand elevated.
wash your hands with COLD water for the next several days - try to keep it away from the spray when you shower.

AFTER a couple days:
Aloe vera/aloe vera gel/Tea Tree Oil will help speed healing.
this is when you can put vasoline on the burn - not while it's still a fresh burn.

first of all never put an oil of any kind on a burn, think about it, vaseline puts a coat over the skin so that it holds the heat in! Putting your hand in water with vaseline on it is not going to help, the water will just bead off the vaseline, because oil and water don't mix. I suggest you gently wipe the vaseline off, and put aloe vera gel on it, if you have any, if you don't have any of that, noxema also works well. If you don't have either of those, then you can put mustard on it. The vinegar in the mustard will help heal the burn and the coldness will feel good on it.
