How to Treat a Burn

These are three classifications of burns - Hi friends,
there are 3 classification of burn
1. A first degree burn causes redness and swelling in the outermost layers of the skin.
2. A second degree burn involves redness, swelling, and blistering. The damage may extend to deeper layers of the skin
3. A third degree burn destroys the entire depth of the skin. It can also damage fat, muscle, organs, or bone beneath the skin. Significant scarring is common, and death can occur in the most severe cases.

Hi,sadiq007,this is a good discussion, in the past,lots of people didn't pay attention to cold.May be cold turned to fever.I agree with you that more water is good for burn,certainly,more sleep is in good way.Prevention...I think the wheather more and more chill should be clothes,this is in good preventive way.When you already have a temperature,I think you felt fairly easy after taking the medicine.

We keep an aloe plant for burns, the sap from this plant takes the pain away and helps to heal the burn. Cool water bath with baking soda helps sunburns, But if it is very bad and you have blisters you need to see a doctor, it's can cause harm to the whole body .

Hello, Cold water compresses will help with the pain. Some good things for burns is aloe Vera, it is good to keep a aloe Vera plant in your kitchen for this all you do is break off a leaf, and apply the stuff inside. If they are third or forth degree burns you need to get medical attention from a professional. Vitamin E Oil is also good for burns. I hope that this was a help to you. Have a good day.

The very best thing to do for a minor burn, is to run the affected area under cold water for 5 minutes. I have done this when burnt on an iron, and it didn't even leave a scar.
