  • why? its just a blister, I wouldn't have bothered the doctor with it either. I would say wash it use an ointment that will kill off germs like neosporin, BUT those can hurt a burn really bad. I would clean it, then put aloe on it with a loose gauze bandage personally.

  • It needs to be checked out. I recently burned my hand and the doctor told me to use ONLY soap and water and keep it uncovered as much as possible but with a 1 yr old, I would atleast call the doctor and ask what to do. I would have it checked out to be on the safe side, burns can become infected quickly.
