What first aid treatment should be administered in the case of a burn?
Cold water stops the "cooking" of your skin. Once it has been
cooled down the burn can be assessed for treatment. If it is minor
use a water soluable product like Burnfee gel to continue cooling
it, and to give relief from pain. If it is more serious, a product
called Burn Relief can be used as a treatment and dressing in one.
It is also water soluable. If a doctor has to be consulted, and you
have used a greasy ointment on your burn, it will have to be
scrubbed off, and that will really hurt!
Never put any ointment on a burn that has broken the skin - and
never burst blisters. A recommended dressing for a bad burn needing
treatment is Cling-film, to keep out infection, but do not apply
too much pressure with it.
