Question: I just spilled myself with boiling water, what do i do!?
Run cold tap water over burned area for several minutes!. Then take an icepack and wrap it in a cloth and apply to the burn!. Do not put ice pack directly on the burn!. DO NOT APPLY BUTTER OR OIL! If you have blisters and the pain does not subside within a half hour or so, you may want to call your doctor!. With blistering you run the risk of infection as with any open wound!. Do not prick blisters either!. Cover gently with a sterile pad and tape down!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

If it's not very severe, put a bit of Neosporin or other triple antibiotic cream on it, or if you have some prescription Silvadene anti-burn cream you can use that!. If it is severe and a large area, you should go see a doctor!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Put the burned area under cold water as soon as you can or use ice cubes in water!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
