not heard of that do tesco do it?

If you can make up a bowl of cold water with ice cubes in it.

Pour me a drink that will take your mind off it ..

cold water for minimum of 15 minutes after the burn should have helped

I have an iron burn mark on my hand.

It took ages to heal and i'm probably scarred for life.

Probably ironing drunk!

To treat superficial (minor) burns at home follow the advice below.

Cool the skin using cool, or tepid, water for between 10-30 minutes, ideally within 20 minutes of the injury happening. This will prevent the burn getting worse.

Do not use ice, iced water, creams, or greasy substances, such as butter to sooth the burn. A cool bath, or shower, will help to soothe the burn.

Cover the burn using cling film, in a layer over the burn, rather than wrapping it around a limb. A clean, clear plastic bag is suitable to use for burns on your hand.

If the burn is painful, taking a mild painkiller, such as paracetamol, or ibuprofen, can help. However, always check the packaging to make sure that you take the correct dosage.

Do not interfere with the burn, or break any blisters. If the burn is very painful, or seems to be getting worse, call NHS Direct on 0845 46 47, or visit your GP for advice.

could do with some gas and air lol

Alcohol is the answer Edjaned:-D

very cold water even now-and vaseline if you have it-i know there are other things but you are likely to have vaseline-keep it moistened! not until its cooled down tho!

How big is the burn mark?

It is the same as yours about a milimetre wide and about 3 centimetres across.

I did it about 3 years ago, then my bf moved in with me and now i don't iron. :thumbsup:

you shouldn't use vaseline. Its can promote infection, it's oil based and will make the burn retain the heat as well.
Like dutchy said, cling film should be used to cover it as it does not stick, its not fluffy so no fibres would get into the burn. In theory any burn above the size of a 50p piece should be checked out.

oh and if you get blistering try not to pop the blisters...that clear fluid is your plasma!

thanks cheerleadernot heard of that do tesco do it?


yes they do :thumbsup: i've used it many a time when i've burnt myself on the oven :lol:

I have always used Manuka Honey when I have burnt myself and then covered it up, it stops hurting within an hour or so perhaps longer for a larger burn. It helps it to heal quicker too, preventing infection and scarring. Covering it up will help stop it hurting too, for reasons I can't find the answers to the air getting to it makes it hurt more?!

Hope it feels better really soon

Dry Heat Burns such as yours-
Cool the burn immediately with cold, preferably running water for at least 10 minutes (which you've said you've done)
Remove watches, rings etc during cooling, as burned area will swell
Dress the wound with a sterile non-adherent dressing, clean cling film s good (like bellabonkers suggested) but drape not wrap, this will minimise infection

All full thickness burns need to be seen at hospital, as do partial thickness burns larger than 1% of the casualty's body surface, an area about the size of the casualty's hand, superficial burns larger than 5%, equivalent to five palm areas

totally agree, creams and lotions are usually the cause of burns becoming infected, if you went to hospital with anything on a burn the first thing they do is wash it off.

Totally agree with not using creams (first aider also).

i know how it feels. I hurt myself with the soldering iron, and I left my arm in cold water for 15min. Still hurts but I took it. Left a scar on my arm :(. Don't worry, go watch tv to get your head off it

failing that... dial 999 and check out if the paramedic on duty is good looking or not :-D

You can buy a spray that kills the pain of burns, its in an orange can think its called burneze, but not definate, it does kill the pain though.

:thumbsup: yeh id go for this

Hi edjaned...........how u diddling? x

Not sure if you have children or not. If you do and have the good old sudocrem put some of that on as it's meant to be good for sunburn so presumable would be good on normal burns too.

nah it would be fine to keep an old burn supple. I think it did used to get recomended for burns but...also a first aider and know that no lotions should ever be put on a fresh burn.

Thermal paste, heat sink and fan.:thumbsup:
