Burnt my arm

I had my second day back at work on Saturday, and I managed to give myself a really nasty burn!! It didn't hurt too much but turned into a huge blister by Sunday. Yesterday the blister burst and over night it's stuck to my sheets so I've pulled the top layer of skin off it. I actually can't tell you how much it's hurting

Would burn cream or something help?

Omg ouch I got a small blister on my thumb from gardening and the skin came off, I know just how painful it is. I'm not sure how effective burn cream is because essentially the burns gone. I found putting a plaster on it during the day helped because it stopped it rubbing on things, then I let it air at night. It took a few days until new skin grew back though. Perhaps sudocream might help?

Vaseline is good for burns, not sure about when the blister has popped though.

Don't cover it completely, let it air for as much as you can, get some gauze and micropore tape, and loosely cover it. But only for a few hours. Also keep it clean as because the blister has burst it's open to infection

ouch! i always used to burn myself at work. i worked in a chippy so the fat used to splash up & spit at you etc.

once the blister had popped we had to cover in vaseline (sudocrem used to sting) and wrap loosely in a gauze & tape.

in future as soon as u burn yourself run it under the cold tap for 5 mins. cover in butter & wrap in cling film. xx
