How Does Mustard Help a Burn?

Answer

There are several theories as to why yellow mustard helps burns. The most common is that mustard contains vinegar, which is very good for helping minor burns. The other is that mustard also helps draw out some of the heat. Either way, the first thing to do with a minor burn is to run it under cool, not ice cold, water to stop the burning process. If it is a severe burn, seek immediate medical attention.
