Second Degree Burns
#1
Burned three of my fingers earlier today, don't have an aloe plant handy. Tried some OTC Burn Cream, now I get why they call it burn cream, it burned like hell, didn't do anything to relieve the pain.

Any ideas other than soaking them in cold water, that's all that's been helping so far.

Nope, cold water and some ibuprofen if you're not going to go to the doc.

I wouldn't put any kind of cream on it.

Melted plastic sucks. Couldn't get it off before it burned a couple layers.

Quote:For second-degree heat burns without open blisters, follow these steps:

* Remove jewelry or tight clothing from the burned area before it begins to swell.

* Flush the burn with cool running water or apply cold- water compresses (a wet towel or handkerchief) until the pain lessens. Do not use ice or ice water, which can cause more damage to the burned area.

* Try not to break the blisters. If the blisters break, the exposed skin can become infected.

* Cover the burn with a clean (sterile, if possible), dry, nonfluffy bandage such as a gauze pad. Do not put tape on the burn.

* Do not put ointments, grease, petroleum jelly, butter, or home remedies on the burn. These substances can hold the heat in, making the burn worse.

* Keep burned arms or legs raised to reduce swelling.

* Get medical help for second-degree burns greater than 2 to 3 inches in diameter or for burns on the hands, face, penis, buttocks, or vaginal area.

For second-degree heat burns with open blisters, follow these steps:

* Do not remove clothing if it is stuck to the burn.

* Do not run water over the burn or use water on the bandage because it increases the risk of shock.

* Cover the burn with a clean (sterile, if possible), dry, nonfluffy bandage, such as a gauze pad. Do not put tape on the burn.

For extensive second-degree burns that are more than 2 to 3 inches in diameter, see your doctor.

* You will need extra fluids to replace the large quantities of fluids your body loses through the burned area. Your doctor may give you fluids intravenously (through a tube into your vein).

* Your doctor will prescribe antibiotics because the burned skin can no longer protect your body from infection by airborne bacteria.

* Your doctor will either lightly bandage the burned area with an antibacterial dressing or leave it unbandaged.

* Your doctor will prescribe medicine to kill the pain.

* Your doctor may recommend a skin graft to lessen scarring.

* Your doctor may give you a tetanus booster.

For chemical burns, follow these steps:

* Flush liquid chemicals from your skin thoroughly with running water for 15 to 30 minutes.

* Remove any clothing and jewelry on which the chemical has spilled.

* Brush dry chemicals off the skin if large amounts of water are not available. Small amounts of water will activate some chemicals. Be sure to keep the chemicals away from your eyes.

* Cover the burn with a dry, loose bandage.

I have heard that potato skins can be used to treat burns. Have yet to try it.

Thanks Nurse Amy! I used to resort to arm shaking and a healthy supply of profanity. Now I know.
