burns

I burnt 2 of my fingertips this morning while I was cooking.  They are blistering and they hurt so bad even though it was hours ago.  Of course both are on my right hand which I use the most!

Any ideas to help them heal?

Blisters mean 2nd degree. Maybe dr. Should check it, and he can give you silvadene cream.

You should keep essential oils on hand. Lavender, helichrysum, Idaho balsam fir, and frankincense oils help with tissue regeneration and reduce scarring..also aloe Vera helps for inflammation

thanks ladies. I have 2 large blisters and the tip of my other finger is slightly burnt as well. I touched the bottom of my 400 degree skillet so it's not pretty :(

Lavender essential oil or tea tree oil

I burned my hand pretty good Superbowl Sunday. I put tea tree oil on and covered it. It took the burn out almost immediately.

Lavender essential oil helps soothe and heal burns

If the blister is bigger than a dime, consult a doctor. If not use an aloe vera gel (not anything with oil, it will hold the heat in) and wrap lightly with gauze. If it still feels like it is on fire, soak a piece of cotton in milk, and wrap. The milk will help remove the heat, and also help start the healing process. Change often. (this is what my mother does in the nursing home when her patients or fellow employees get a burn (she's a nurse).
