Skin Burn Treatment and Natural Remedies ,Popped Burn Blister




Today is the 4th Day since this Burn Injury Happened with me on Sunday The Morning Of Holi festival . I was making breakfast Indian Aaloo kachori  and while I got distracted by baby crying I put the kachori In Hot Oil in hurry and the Hot Oil just jumped out of the Frying Pan on my wrist !

I washed My wrist immediately with Running tap water, than took some Ice cubes from the refrigerator and gently rubbed on the Affected skin. But I had this burning sensation on my skin and I realized this is a major Burn accident. I was already sad to think that I will have this burn mark on my hand/wrist forever now, at least for many years. Burns marks fade slowly , I have previous burn experiences as well :-
  • Once I touched the hot iron by mistake .
  • Once In the Bangalore India Beauty Parlor the girl burned My Skin with Hot Wax.
  • Another time I touched the Hot Pressure Cooker few months ago!!

All those marks are still there on hand but they faded gradually by treating them with natural remedies, I used regular applications of coconut oil, 100% pure virgin coconut oil to fade the marks, and It works wonders with time.I also used tender coconut water to fade burn skin marks.


Day 1 So This is how the Burn looked immediately after accident , I applied Silverex cream (which I borrowed from my Indian Orissa neighbors ) immediately as I couldn't find my antiseptics in panic!!


Day 2 Next morning when I woke up the mark was much darker and I could see the thick black/purple skin I now knew How much skin I actually need to regrow , Burned area was slightly painful and it had burning sensation it was a bit itchy too so I applied whole day the antimicrobial Silverex and coconut oil as well. I even tried the Colgate paste as it was burning a lot and Colgate paste gives the cooling effect  .




Day 3 Burn had become a blister  and by this evening the blister was much bigger than you see in the pic below.It was filled with water and I was so conscious and careful that I may hurt it / pop it because my baby always wants to be carried or at least be around me and  I was so worried that accidentally I will pop it , I even took bath very late in the evening that day very carefully so that I don't harm it.

Day 4 when I got up in the morning the blister was all flat I thought the water dried by itself I had no pain and things looked fine...
I was about to click pic but before that I had to carry my baby as he needed feed and than while transferring him from my arm to my husbands arm this Thing Popped off completely..

I panicked again...
I applied the antimicrobial cream it started burning so bad..
Than I applied Colgate to cool the burn it still continued burning...

 



So I washed it with running tap water it was a bit of relief but than I had to apply some medication to avoid the infection that may occur so I applied Boroline the antiseptic cream. I had tetanus injection last year in India before my delivery so I am not worrying about that for now. I also applied coconut oil again as this burn skin needs regular application sadly its on my wrist on right hand so it gets wiped when I do something or carry my 10 Months baby boy in my arms . So I need to reapply regularly the treatments of burn. Currently I have covered it with a Band aid as the skin from the burn blister keeps getting hurt or wiped while I carry baby or do other household stuff. 

PS: My burn is second degree burn so I am not currently rushing to a ER as I will see if the natural remedy of coconut oil will help to heal also I will be using the Boroline and Silverex cream . Mom also told to use Ghee/Clarified butter to heal naturally the burn mark I may try that as well later for fading the burn skin mark. If I see any signs of pus or infection I will visit a Doctor's Clinic .For Now its raining badly outside in Singapore after 2 months and the weather is really lovely and dark because its cloudy , that's the best part of living in this beautiful Island ,The weather changes drastically and I love it when It rains here :) I love Singapore ...

  3. Do get some medical attention on your burnt hand! That's why when going camping, I can't over emphasise enough that first aids and other camping essentials are needed to keep you safe. After all, you'll be far away from the big cities so it's wiser to have a checklist on what you have to bring. For more of this, hop on to http://backpackingmastery.com/gear/camping-essentials.html
