So I burned my hand

Tonight I burned my hand by leaning on the grill cover. I have ice on it but it just keeps aching. How long will this continue? YUK.

I've burnt my hands so often through the years I often don't notice when I do it anymore till I see the burn mark later....of course THEN it starts to hurt!

Ouch....Sorry Miss Elaine. I do the ice therapy when I burn my finger etc....Sometimes I sit around with my finger in a glass of ice water...Sooner or later you are just going to have to Go "cold turkey" and remove the ice...It will continue to hurt a bit...then ease up. Maybe some Tylenol ?? Or a big big drink of Bourbon!!!

I burned my finger a couple of years ago with fudge and it melted the skin off. Ice is suppose to be the worst thing to put on a burn, but, that is the first thing I grab, lol. Aloe vera is the best, straight off the plant if possible. Luckily, my sister had one and it was wonderful. I still have a scar from it too, that HURT!!lol
Try one of these and let us know. Egg whites seem to be the best.

Sorry to hear of your burn.

In my experience, ice does nothing but pro long the pain, and then you go from being ice cold, to BURNING HOT...the ice intensifies the pain when removed from ice.

It is a bummer, but best to just suck it up. The pain goes quicker, and it seems to blister less.

Try putting your hand in some vinegar it helps temporarily as dos fresh onion juice. What ever you do as some folks believe, DO NOT PUT BUTTER ON A BURN it will make it worse. Also you do not want to use ice but cold water on a burn when you first get one for a minimum of 10 minutes.

so sorry , i know it really hurts. no ice water, and i would think vinegar would sting. just leave it alone , seems to work the best. unless of course it covers a large area. then you should go to e.r. if not to deep you could put neosporein on it. there is one with a pain reliever, and really any antibiotic creme would work. i would use cream and not ointment.
