Salt and ice challenge scars/burns!!? pleaseeee help!!

ok so me and my friend were board and decided to do the salt and ice challenge, u put salt on ur skin then put ice on it. I did this for about 2 minutes and it burned like crazzy which is supposed to happen but now I have these huge purple/reddish cuts/marks and it hurts! I woke up this morning and it kinda started bubbling! how can I get rid of the marks because I can't show my parents!

You have given yourself second degree frostbite. There is no way to "get rid of" these blisters, you will *likely* fully recover with just some whitish scars to show for it but it will probably take a week or so assuming it doesn't become infected. You could also have long term lack of sensation in those areas. You are lucky you stopped when you did, going further could have resulted in 3rd degree frostbite where muscle tissue is also damaged along with the skin, this often requires surgery to remove dead tissue so it doesn't become necrotic. I suggest you seek medical help to prevent infection and/or further damage

All you can do is put neosporin on it until it heals. You may still have a scar and if you do get Mederma and it will fade. Don't do that again..... you burnt your skin!!!!!

That sounds like a second degree burn... Tell your parents the truth, and go to the doctor.
