I have a horrible burn on my thumb from a bag of popcorn exploding on me last night. I never do microwave popcorn, but someone left a bag here and I was lazy last night.
Anyways, I have no burn medicine. What really works to help a burn?

According to the AHA First Aid guidelines, only cool water & a sterile dressing. Butter is a big No No- so don't use that. And have hubby kiss the booboo! lol :p

^^^ Dardenella: Ice is also a NO NO for burns. Just cool water. Then keep it clean or use a sterile dressing
