Hi there and thank you for the question. I am a Registered Nurse and will be happy to help you today.
How large of an area is it? can you estimate?
It is about 2.5 inches long and 1.5" wide
Possibly slighty bigger
the best thing to do is to try to figure out if you have a first or second degree burn
if a first degree, you can keep it covered with a dry gauze to keep the air off of it and if a second degree, you can keep a burn cream or ointment on it (like Neosporin)...although keeping some cream on it if a first degree won't hurt it either
I think it is a second degree burn based on what I have read about the difference between the 2. Should I just keep the Neosporin on it until it heals? Or should I just keep it dry and keep any air off it?
well, keeping the air off of it will help with the pain..the cream is just to keep it moist and comfortable
it would be great to find some Tefla pads at your local pharmacy...they are non stick
oh okay. It burns a little bit but not much. feels good with the neosporin on it. So just keep the cream on it until it heals pretty much? Thanks!
yes, just keep the cream on it
hope it heals up nicely!
