Okay first off, thanks to the moms that helped me this morning when I was in too much pain to figure out how to keep gauze on and over the burn.
However, I have a new dilemma.
The burn itself is a minor 2nd degree burn. I was told to take care of it at home with neosporin, cleaning it as needed and keeping ti wrapped up in gauze to avoid infection. Tylenol for pain.
The first layer of skin has peeled and I was told not to take it off myself. There are a few blisters.
All in all the pain is at about a 5 until it needs to be cleaned.
The new dilemma I am having it when I go to change the gauze its STUCK. My guess it the fluid that is leaking is the culprit. Anyway, I keep having to ripe the gauze off my flesh. It #%%&% HURTS.
So do I leave it unwrapped? But then what? I have on pants because I have no shorts. Won't it stick to my pants? They are loose though?
Wrap it back up? With what?
And I need a shower. Sweet doc of mine failed to mention what i'm supposed to do then..
I know its alot ladies but if you have some advice....THANK YOU

Aloe Vera from a plant will help sooth the burned area. Home depot or a florist shop has them. Also, if you peeled off skin, use pure vitamin E, break a tablet and spread the gel on the burn, it will prevent scarring.
