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 ...
