1 Bump

I just got a severe burn on my hand :(

It isn't that big like the size of a dime but it looks to be atleast a 2nd degree burn, my skill literally just peeled away. I don't have burn cream and I don't want to have to get up and go to the store since I have my son sleeping. I ran it under cold water but is there anything else I can do? It huts like a mug!

  • I was going to say vinegar too. I want to say baking soda too but I can't remember if that's right. But definitely also something like antibacterial ointment, vitamin E oil, or maybe A & D ointment, something like that should help.

  • Keep it dry and get some neosporin to keep if from get it infected. If it hurts now, it will hurt worse. Call your doctor if you have to and see what they would recommend.
