Yesterday I burnt my thumb by putting it in an oven to take the brownies I had just baked out. What should I do?(it burned through the glove

It burnt through the first layer of my thumb, I just applied some cold water onto it though. But, the whole first layer of my thumb is all burnt off.

How badly is it burnt? Red and painful? Blistered and painful? Aloe Vera helps. You should have a plant growing in your home if you don't already. If its blistered treat with aloe and keep it clean. Burns of that nature can become infected rather easily. The pain should subside in a day or two

Youve probably got at least a second degree burn. Keep it clean and covered and watch for infection. The best thing you could put on it would be aloe vera either raw or store bought gel.

Go to a local store and find some blister medication.
