2nd scope burn meds?

Happy 4th, I burned my thumb! Its about a second level burn, and I have be icing it all year, and the pain is still intense. What over the counter or household items can I put on it to minimize the twinge or help it alleviate faster?

Btw - I've already tried aloe, to no avail. Thanks a loy!

Answer:
it's going to hurt for awhile. take some motrin or advil. that'll lend a hand with the throbbing and swelling.

what type of fireworks were you lighting rotten? :)
I got a second scope burn. There are no household meds you can use to help restore to health it faster. You could try motrain I guess. But honestly, you should go to the ER.
i get a second degree burn on my thumb from touching a propane burner while it be on (stupid bet) and i just iced contained by in a bowl of brackish water and rime and then when i get a blister i poked it with a STERILE (dont want to risk infection) syringe and drained the puss and it just unhurriedly goes away near neosporin and a cloth bandage. hope it help i know how bad that sucker hurts
cold sea is the best first aid when you burn yourself - 20 minutes under the slap is ideal. NEVER rime or vinegar or milk or butter or mustard or toothpaste or sunscreen or semen or vaseline or tomatoes or vanilla extract or yogurt or sour cream or egg white or lavender oil or cocoa butter or brackish or tea or potato or shaving cream or olive oil or insightful heat or baking soda- not until the skin is fully heal! ignore anyone who advise any of these!

i would advise that you cover the adjectives area next to sterile paraffin wax or aqueous cream bp. (check the links below and see if you can find a local equivalent)

cover the burnt nouns in paraffin wax after cleaning and removing any burst blisters - these are lately sites of infection and will take longer to make well. wash and reapply every 4-6 hours - cover next to cling wrap if you wish to cover beside clothes - this will stop your clothes getting covered with paraffin and maintain the burn.

cling wrap alone is ok if you can't get hold of any paraffin. it also act as a protective artificial skin - helping retain moisture and protect from further damage and anguish. cling wrap is cheap and clean bad the roll. in Australia ambulances commonly use this when someone has be burnt. - please register that cling wrap isn't always practical, close to on your face.

paraffin creates a stamp stopping water departure the body and reduces anguish as it protects sensitised nerves. the paraffin imitates the raw oils secreted by the skin. skin cell are better able to multiply and regenerate near this treatment. pain is also help. make sure you buy plenty of this paraffin - as the burn heal switch to aqueous cream bp.(aqueous cream has a bunch of paraffin within it plus some moisturisers - look out for stuff that also contains sorbolene or glycerine as these help also). following this regime conspicuously will help your sunburn restore to health faster and peel smaller quantity. aloe is good coz it remoisturises but that moisture can be summarily lost as the skin can't contain fluids- this is a function of healthy skin.

so put aloe on, and consequently the paraffin on over the top as long as there is no broken skin this works great. if near is broken skin leave out the aloe - of late paraffin.

long term treatment to prevent scarring or loss of function due to contractures(as skin heal it can tighten reducing how much you can move - a skin graft is necessary to repair this). each day moisturiser, daily stretches - bargain to a physio, pressure bandages close to tubigrip, massaging the defacement. this all reduce/flatten the defect and minimise the need for further treatment/surgery.

please memo that this is an explanation based on the copious questions that own been asked on ByeDr.com. adjectives treatments are used in hospital and when done correctly by a form professional hugely improve the outcomes of burns patients.

finally if you are really worried run to a hospital that has a burns part or plastic surgeons. anything more serious than sunburn should be seen by a burns trained doctor or nurse.
