How can you treat burns from cooking?

I was cooking and touched a hot pan. there is a blister and I have an ice pack on it. the pain is an unbearable sting when the ice comes off.

Never put Vaseline on a burn! It just cooks the skin like butter on meat in a hot skillet. You can run cool, not cold water over it than put vanilla on it to ease the pain. Yes, I said vanilla. That was told to me by an EMS/firefighter. It works. Than you must be certain to keep it clean, don't break blisters and bandage loosely so the skin keeps clean but does not come off before some healing has occurred.

Don't put vasaline on it. It will block the heat from escaping.

Aruba aloe us a gel that comes in tubes. Check it out at your local drug store. Aloe plants work well too. Good luck. I hope the food was good!

Run under cold water, do not pop the blister, do not apply any creams or gels

Actually - ice really isn't a remedy. The burn has already happened, and ice won't change that - although it can help to reduce the pain. Straight vitamin E is the best for healing a burn. Aloe is also helpful.

Put your burn in cold water/ice pack everyday about 15 minutes a day to reduce swelling and cream on it twice a day.

Try a dab of honey on it for the antibacterial effect. Aloe vera will make it heal and help with the pain.

you can put cold water or ice on it. i usually just run the burn under cold water. That usually does the trick.

My husband accidentally pulled the crock pot off the counter and the hot boiling broth spilled all over his arm. It was so bad, it almost burned the skin right off.

My sister is an herbalist and she rushed over to our house and crushed comfrey leaves from her yard and put it on my husbands burn and wrapped it up overnight.

The next day, we could hardly believe it, there was a skin layer, but no big blistering. My sister told us to do the crushed comfery leaf on the burn for three days, which we did. Then she said to follow up with comfery salve.

Some skin did peel from my husbands arm and now there was only a light colored scar you can hardly see.

If it hadn't been for my sister and her comfery, he would have had a big ugly scar, but he doesn't, thanks to her magical herbs. : D

I got a burn from a flat iron last week, (family member dropped it on me) And my cousin, Works for a forest service and just happened to have something called second skin. It is good for blistering and burns. It will relieve the pain and help it. Even if it already has blistered, or is relieved, you can still use it.
Hope this helps! (It Helped me) (it takes about 10 mins. to work)
(By the way, you can get this at a CVS or Walgreen)

A nice shade of blue would be a good color. I wore blue for my son wedding in April. You can also wear beige green,rust, copper brown.ect.
I would stay away from the pinks, purple and red colors, not to miss lead the guess that doesn't know the families.

These colors would be sore of and understanding that you're the groom's mother.

Should keep cold water on it to help the pain. Ice can make it hurt more. Honey is good as an antibacterial. Depending on the degree of your burn you should seek medical help. Good luck...

Try aloe or vitamin E. These are both very good for your skin. Ice will no longer help after it has already been a while after you burned yourself. Make sure not to touch or grab the spot where you burned yourself because it will just irritate it more.

Soak a towel or dishcloth into a bowl of cold milk and place it over the burn as if it was an icepack.
