    Phone NHS direct - very helpfull normally

    Put Toothpaste on it!!

    Loads of cold water and toothpaste...colgate does the trick....dont cover it up though!

    Frozen peas or Ice pack etc.. Tie a wet tea towel around wrist.

    Jam your other hand in the car door so it takes the thought away from the burn!

    Only joking, Just keep it under the tap for 10-15 mins if possible, i know it is sore but it really does help!

    Cold water...lots of it...let tap run over it


    Painkillers especially anti imflammatory ones

    I wouldnt adivse on covering up with a towl or anything. When my little sister got burnt with tea we covered her up in a cold wet town. But when we got to the hospital, cause her skin was pealing and blisters were bursting the towl stuck to her skin. And made it worse!

    ok guys thank u so much. cant rep as in pain but gonna see which of above is bst..... apart from hurting other hand! joker" x

    yea, frozen peas cold water. Putting stuff on it (toothpaste) doesn't really help much. Also take two paracetamol and ibuprofen each but no more for 4-6 hours, that should ease the pain.

    Take you little one to casualty, if its blistering,
    They can put a dressing on and some times burst the blister.
    Regular painkillers/calpol, and keep an eye for infection.
    Should all be fine soon with the right treatment.
    I must say I haven't heard of toothpaste as a treatment for burns/

    ye....thats what happens when u rep me hahahahahahahaha

    just kidding hope ur ok, ppl already given u sound advice....hope it gets better soon so u can get back in the kitchen which is where women belong*

    Toothpaste works quite well....My mums used it a few time....she always burns herself when cooking:w00t:

    I'm sure it works for your mum Abz, but I personally wouldn't use it on a littleone with a blistered burn.
    I think toothpaste does have something in it that has an anti inflamatory effect, maybe I will try it next time
    I get a burn.

    Oh my mistake, I thought it was the little one, Well poor you, lots of cold water and painkillers should do the
    trick, any probs visit your local cas,
    Hope the pain goes away quickly Magicbeans.

    Put some aloe vera on it, if you have an aloe vera plant just break a piece off and put juice on burn

    cold water if you despratley need to clean cover it with cling film to save stuff getting in it dont cover it with anything else it will only stick!!

    other than that a couple of painkillers and ibuprofen then have a nice rest!! :-)

    My advice:

    Lots of cold running water, continue holding under the water long after the pain has gone, otherwise the pain will return. It depends on the size & intensity of the burn, but generally you should hold it under the water for at least 5 minutes.
    Leave the burn uncovered unless it's likely to get dirty (e.g. if you're on a building site or in a messy place) in which case use clingfilm.
    Do not put creams, ointments, toothpaste etc on the wound as they make it harder for the doctor/nurse to treat the burn
    Seek medical help (the burn may look small but it could be deep).
    DO NOT POP ANY BLISTERS! Doing so will leave an open wound that will be susceptible to infection.

    go some lovely watery blisters forming...bleurgh!

    toothpaste??????!!!!!!!!!!! new one on me

    umm, I have used vege oil as its a good heat conductor and can sometimes help draw the heat away. Also something called carmex which you put on your chapped lips, that works a treat.

    I dont usually use water cos I find as soon as you remove the water it gets worse. If its blistering, I would get it seen to.

    Whenever I get a burn, I run it under a cold tap for a while and then I cover the skin in honey - raw honey works best but if you don't have any just use the normal stuff. It works really well, better than anything else I have tried!

    Medical advice now is NOT to use burn cream etc

    Banned

    hey mb, sorry to hear your in pain hun, if your arm is bad enough to need treatment then please go to a chemist who will advise you on what to use or advise you to see gp, dont get putting anything on it

    Nothing

    Put nothing on it, worst of all creams, lotions and potions..........NO. Very expensive and not needed for minor burns

    Only apply cling film if severe burn and you are on the way to hospital, not a regular treatment. You have to put folds in the cling film in case of swelling

    Most burns are minor, not serious. If concerned go to walk in centre or call NHS direct for further info. More severe burns require careful management to prevent scarring

    Ouch. Hope it's feeling better now.

    A few shots of vodka may help:thumbsup:
