Home remedy for a burn

Post by rodneyw71 » Wed May 31, 2006 8:36 pm

:?: I got a pretty good burn on my arm, I burnt it on a exhaust pipe on a semi. I thought it was healing, but yesterday I had my arm out the window all day and got sun burnt on the old burn, now it looks bad and hurts like hell. My wife bought some stuff but it is for minor burns, this is the whole top of my arm. What can I try on it so it heals faster and doesn't scar. Thanks in advance. :oops:

Go to your doctor and ask for silvadeen (sp?). I only know about it because of my dad...he hot glued his fingers together and without thinking about it he ripped off the glue and had a bad burn and tore off skin. Dont ask what he was doing but it just wasnt good. I know that this stuff works because I was grilling on a small grill and backed into it and burned the back of my leg and put that on...no scar!! You cant get it at the store but ask your dr. for it.

Hope this helps!

Sounds like something that a lot of people should have on hand for first aid situations.

I don't really want to go to the doctor for it, don't have the time. I've burnt my arms on exhaust pipes before, but never had one look like this. thanks for the help.

Maybe call the drug store in your area and ask if they have any...or call the dr and ask for a sample of this stuff...I SWEAR by it. Let me know.

It is still pink and I thought it was safe to try to work with a shirt with the sleeves cut off, and it is bubbling again. I guess I will have to keep it covered.

Don't pop the blisters. let the water in the blister reabsorb into your body. If you pop them they have a good chance to get infected.

They usually seem to pop them selves, I was moving my arm and felt water run down my arm.
