When you burn yourself, get the burn into cool - not cold - water immediately. Leave the burned hand, fingers, whatever in the cool water until it stops hurting. If it starts hurting again when removed from the water, stick it back in. If it takes more than a few minutes, add some salt to the water.

I burn myself all the time, so I know. I usually use running water at first. It's good enough for smaller burns. A few weeks ago I burned my hand badly enough that 1/2 an hour later, it still hurt. I dipped some paper towels in the salted water and wrapped them around my hand. Then I put a plastic bag over that and taped it in place.

The next morning my hand was very pink and pruney, but I couldn't see even a little redness where I had burnt myself.

The reason for cool, not cold, water is that cold will numb and you want to be able to feel that the burn has absorbed enough water to stop hurting.
Thank you taxlady!!

Yes I know about the cool not cold. Cold will send it into shock going from one extreme to the other. I do/did the cold running water for a few minutes then I filled a tall quart take out soup container with cool water and soaked while the roast was in the oven. Then the zip bag later. I never knew about the salt trick. Will epsom salt work?

No, you want plain old NaCl, table salt. About 1.5 teaspoon for a quart of water in US measure or about 9 grams in a litre of water in metric. It doesn't have to be exact. You can taste it. It should be about as salty as seawater. It should not make the burn sting, especially if the skin isn't broken.

Of course if you have a bottle of physiological salt water or Ringer's lying around, that would be perfect.

As a matter of fact, I do have Normal Saline AND Ringer's Lactate in my first aid kit...IV fluids.

I see you had a fight with the oven and the oven won.

Have you ever used Aloe Vera jell? I buy it at walmart and it works wonders on burns.

You can probably get aloe vera gel at the pharmacy or at a health food store. Or you could buy an aloe vera plant



and break off a chunk of one of the leaves. Then smear that on. It's what I do. I have one growing in the kitchen in a hanging pot.

I will look into buying some gel. I have no luck growing things in the house.

I don't usually have much luck with plants indoors either. My neighbour gave it to me; I wouldn't have bought it. It needs sunlight, so that's why it's in the kitchen next to the window. They don't need much water. I think I watered mine about a month ago. I guess I better water it soon. I set the pot in water and water it from the top too. After sitting in water for half an hour, I take it out and let it drip away the excess and then hang it up again.

But you might be happier with the gel. The stuff from the plant wears off your skin fairly quickly and needs to be replenished many times in a day. I guess the gel has something in it that makes it stick.
